(Before It's News)

A suspect in last week’s wave of gruesome church shootings in Shelbyville, Tennessee church buildings was arrested over the weekend. Muslim convert Wendell Buchanan was arrested Saturday afternoon shortly after he was seen driving by Horse Mountain Church of Christ on Horse Mountain Road, which was hit on at least three separate occasions by gunfire. Buchanan allegedly fired into two other churches — Philippi Methodist Church and Singleton United Methodist Church — the University of Tennessee Extension office and shot out several Charter Communications cable boxes during overnight hours Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. What the media is not reporting is the suspect is a Muslim convert.

Tennessee – who could forget the monstrous Chattanooga jihad slaughter?

And Atlas readers are long familiar with the troubles in  Shelbyville, a gateway city for Muslim resettlement. A couple of years ago, I reported on the al Farooq mosque and the sharia beatings going on in the children’s classes.

And a Tyson Foods meat-packing plant in Shelbyville decided in 2009 to acquiesce to a local union’s demands to drop the paid holiday of Labor Day in favor of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr, a decision that Tyson later reversed in the wake of a public backlash.

“Could the Suspect arrested in a Shelbyville, Tennessee Shooting Spree be a Jihadi?” New English Review, October 4, 2016:

Shelby, Tennessee, has been a hotbed of controversy over the past decade.  We have written repeatedly about   the problems arising from influx of Somali refugee workers at the Tyson poultry plant in Bedford County community. See: “Somalis, Shelbyville and Severe Cultural Shock.  Then there was the Soros-backed PBS documentary premiered in the community in May 2011, “Welcome to Shelbyville,” that one reviewer we interviewed  “disturbing and intellectually dishonest.”

Wendell Buchanan

Shelbyville has a new problem; a shooting spree by a suspect, Wendell Buchanan, apprehended by local whose social media discloses his possible Muslim conversion.  The issue is why local law enforcement hasn’t reached out for assistance of the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI to investigate this as a possible terrorist event.   This report would appear to suggest that Buchanan was on a self motivated jihad mission against hated kuffar religious institutions in the community:

September 27 – October 02, 2016: Shelbyville, TN: Three churches were shot up in the Shelbyville, TN area starting on the night of Sep 27, 2016. The Horse Mountain Church of Christ was shot 16 more times the night of Sep 29. The Philippi United Methodist Church along with another church was also struck by 7.62 x 39 rounds on the 29th. (7.62 x 39 rounds are consistent with an AK47 or a SKS rifle) The Bedford County Agriculture Center was also attacked with gunfire on the 29th, shattering the front glass. There were also reports of utility boxes being shot during this time.

On October 02, 2016, the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of Wendell Buchanan, age 30 for the shootings. A check of Wendell Tobias Buchanan’s Facebook page shows that he has been quoting the Quran and demonstrates he is a very vocal follower of Islam.

An October 4, 2016 Shelbyville Times Gazette report on the apprehension of Buchanan noted the seriousness of the charges, but without identifying the ideology behind it:

A suspect in last week’s shootings of church buildings and utility boxes was arrested over the weekend.

Wendell Buchanan, 36, of Sevier Street was arrested Saturday afternoon shortly after he was seen driving by Horse Mountain Church of Christ on Horse Mountain Road, which was hit on at least three separate occasions by gunfire.

“Several deputies were at the church talking with members,” Detective Sgt. Scott Jones of the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday night. “We were given a good description of the suspect’s car.”

A man working nearby Saturday morning heard shots, ran toward the road and saw Buchanan’s car, lowered with sport wheels, drive by, investigators said.

Spotted

“Wendell Buchanan drove by while they were there and Officer Tory Moore of the Shelbyville Police Department, who was patrolling in the area, stopped him on Highway 437 (the Shelbyville bypass).”

When asked if Buchanan had given a reason for his actions, Jones said Monday the investigation hadn’t yet reached that point.

“We’re still talking to him,” Jones said. “This is a joint investigation between the city and county. We’ve worked together from the start.”

Buchanan allegedly fired into two other churches — Philippi Methodist Church and Singleton United Methodist Church — the University of Tennessee Extension office and shot out several Charter Communications cable boxes during overnight hours Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Charges

County investigators are charging Buchanan with nine counts of vandalism, five counts of desecration of a venerated object and four counts of destruction of utility fixtures.

Another vandalism charge was filed by city police for the UT Extension incident, which occurred inside Shelbyville.

Buchanan was being held on $500,000 bond at Bedford County Jail on Monday.

There are lots of questions that should prompt JTTF interests. How and where did Buchanan acquire the AK 47, the ammunition and a possible high capacity magazine?   Was it at a gun show or via an on-line purchase?  Given his self professed Muslim’s profession of faith to his god Allah, where might Buchanan have attended Mosques in the central Tennessee vicinity for possible “instruction” in his new faith?
