33 of the Day: Charleston Shooting
What a horrible story:
A 21-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting nine people attending a Bible study was arrested Thursday morning in what authorities have labeled as a hate crime at a historically black church in downtown Charleston.
The man, Dylann Storm Roof of Eastover, had been publicly identified hours earlier as the suspect in the shooting Wednesday night at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Calhoun Street. Denise Taiste, a Columbia-based spokeswoman, confirmed the man’s identity, but she did not have further information, she said.According to a bulletin dispatchers distributed statewide, Roof was driving a 2000 Hyundai Elantra with a license plate number of LGF330.
