Dylann Storm Roof, Church Shooting

Church Shooting Suspect Identified : Dylann Storm Roof

The FBI has identified the shooting suspect who allegedly opened fire on an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday night, killing 9 people.

The alleged shooter is Dylann Storm Roof, a 21-year-old white male from the Columbia area, according to local news station WISTV. A manhunt is still underway to find him.

Roof is out on bond for charges related to drugs and trespassing, according to an editor for The Post and Courier. A mug shot for his trespassing arrest can be viewed here.
The alleged shooter reportedly said, “I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go,” according to a witness interviewed by NBC News.
The symbols on his jacket are said to be both a South African apartheid era flag, and the Rhodesian (now Zimbabwe) flag
