A gunman reportedly shot at a church near Memphis, CBS 46 reports, but police do not believe the shooting was connected to the recent attack on a church in South Carolina.
On Thursday morning, police arrived at the St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church on Pendleton Street after one of the church's pastors reported finding a bullet hole in the front door of the building.
No one was injured during the shooting. It's unclear when the shot was fired.
News of the Memphis shooting spread quickly on social media this morning, after a white man opened fire in a black church and killed nine people in Charleston, South Carolina.
From Twitter, some insights into how people are feeling this morning, in light of multiple church shootings:
