Shots Fired Into Memphis Church

Shots were fired into a Memphis, Tenn., church early Thursday morning during a choir rehearsal, WMC Action News reports.

There was a bullet in the wall of St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church, the news station reports. No one was present at the time of the shooting. A pastor noticed the bullet in the front door, but it is not clear when the shots were fired.

News of the shooting broke just hours after a tragic attack on a historic black church in Charleston, S.C., that left nine people, including church pastor and state senator the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, dead.

WMC notes that there is nothing indicating any connection between the two church shootings. There is also no indication that specific individuals were targeted.
