Charleston Church Shooting: White Gunman Kills 9 People At Historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Black Church #TheirLivesMattered!

“Nine people were shot to death by a white man at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night — rocking a nation already grappling with institutional racism and race-related violence.

The gunman entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church during a weekly Bible study meeting and opened fire around 9 p.m. Eight people were found dead at the scene, police said. Two others were transported to a hospital, where one later died.

The suspect, named as 21-year-old Dylann Roof, was captured Thursday morning in Shelby, North Carolina, according to Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

According to Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen, Roof was arrested during a traffic stop.

Carson Cowles, Roof’s uncle, told Reuters Roof had received a gun from his father as a birthday gift in April.

“The only reason someone could walk into a church and shoot people praying is out of hate,” said Charleston Mayor Joe Riley at a news conference. “It is the most dastardly act that one could possibly imagine.””

Note from us,

We send our deepest prayers to everyone affected by this awful hate crime. Their lives mattered!
