Charleston terrorist caught + Celeb reactions


The suspect accused of fatally shooting nine people at Emanuel AME Church Wednesday night has been arrested.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says 21-year-old Dylann Roof has been arrested in Shelby, North Carolina. The 21-year-old from Lexington, South Carolina was wanted for the murder of nine people at Emanuel AME Church.

Public records show Roof was most recently arrested in March in Lexington County on drug charges.

According to police, nine people were killed after shots were fired during a prayer meeting inside Emanuel AME Church on Calhoun Street around 9:05 p.m. Police Chief Greg Mullen said officers arrived to find eight people dead inside the church. A ninth victim died later at a nearby hospital.

Elder James Johnson, President of the Charleston Chapter of the National Action News, said SC Senator Clementa C. Pinckney was one of the nine shot and killed inside the church. Pinckney, 41, served as pastor for Emanuel AME in addition to his role as a state senator for District 45.

Mullen said Roof sat through an hour-long bible study before he began shooting church members. He then fled the scene.

Charleston Police released surveillance photos of the suspect during a 6 a.m. news conference. He was later identified by authorities shortly after 10 a.m.
