Clementa Pinckney - Pastor of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopalal Church Was (1) of (9) gunned down by 21 year-old Dylann Storm Roof.
Information from Tribune News Services, The Los Angeles Times and The State newspaper in Columbia, S.C., was included in this story.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said the attack will be investigated as a hate crime.
Surveillance video showed the gunman entering the church on Wednesday, and Charleston County Coroner Rae Wilson said he initially didn’t appear threatening. “The suspect entered the group and was accepted by them, as they believed that he wanted to join them in this Bible study,” she said. Then, “he became very aggressive and violent.”
According to a woman named Cynthia Taylor, Felecia Sanders said she survived by playing dead as she lay on top of her granddaughter to protect her. Taylor is the niece of 87-year-old shooting victim Susie Jackson, who sang in the choir.
Roof’s childhood friend Joseph Meek Jr. called the FBI after recognizing Roof in the surveillance footage. Meek said he and Roof had been best friends in middle school but lost touch when Roof had moved away. The two reconnected a few weeks ago after Roof reached out on Facebook, Meek said.
Roof never talked about race years ago but recently made remarks out of the blue about the killing of unarmed black 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida and the riots in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Meek said. “Roof said he wanted segregation between whites and blacks. I said, ‘That’s not the way it should be.’ But he kept talking about it.”
Meek said Roof also told him that he had used birthday money from his parents to buy a gun and that he had “a plan.” He didn’t elaborate, but Meek said he was worried — and said he knew Roof had the “Glock” — a .45-caliber pistol — in the trunk of his car. Meek said he later, took the gun from the trunk and hid it in his house, just in case.
The next day, Meek gave it back to him.
A gun was recovered from Roof’s car in North Carolina, but the make of the gun has not been released
After an intense overnight manhunt, Dylann Storm Roof, 21, the apparent gunman, surrendered without incident in Shelby, N.C., about 250 miles from the church.
Roof had complained that “blacks were taking over the world” and that “someone needed to do something about it for the white race,” according to a friend who alerted the FBI to Roof’s identity.
Roof agreed to extradition and was flown back to Charleston from North Carolina, authorities said.
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch says a suspect is in custody in the shooting by a man who joined a prayer meeting and then opened fire inside a historic black church in downtown Charleston, killing nine people, including the pastor. Charleston police identified the suspect as Dylann Roof, 21, of Lexington, South Carolina.
The Emanuel AME church is steeped in black history, and its lead pastor, state Sen. Clementa Pinckney — among the dead — recalled that in a 2013 sermon.
“What the church is all about,” Pinckney said, is the “freedom to be fully what God intends us to be and have equality in the sight of God. And sometimes you got to make noise to do that.”
Pinckney, 41, was a married father of two and a Democrat who spent 19 years in the South Carolina legislature after he was first elected at 23, becoming the youngest member of the House.
“He had a core not many of us have,” said Sen. Vincent Sheheen, who sat beside him in the Senate. “I think of the irony that the most gentle of the 46 of us — the best of the 46 of us in this chamber — is the one who lost his life.”
The other victims were Cynthia Hurd, 54; Tywanza Sanders, 26; Myra Thompson, 59; Ethel Lance, 70; and the Revs. DePayne Middleton Doctor, 49; Sharonda Singleton, 45; and Daniel Simmons Sr., 74
CHARLESTON, S.C. — It was an act of “pure, pure concentrated evil,” Charleston’s mayor said — a black community’s leading lights extinguished by gunfire, apparently at the hands of a young white man who sat among them through an hour of prayer.
In one blow, the gunman on Wednesday night added nine victims at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church to the ever-lengthening list of America’s racial casualties.
They included a state senator who doubled as the church’s minister, three other pastors, a regional library manager, a high-school coach and speech therapist, a government administrator, a college-enrollment counselor and a recent college graduate — six women and three men who felt called to open their church to all.
