Terrorists Releasing Shot at The Church of Charleston and 9 Killed
Charleston Police Chief Gregory Mullen said, Dylann Roff was arrested in Shelby, North Carolina, about four hours from the incident. Local police said that he was driving a black Hyundai car with the vehicles’s number LGF330.
The shooting took place at Episcopal Methodist Emmanuel African church in Charleston downtown at 21.00, Wednesday night.
Mullen said, the shooting was a crime against a background of hatred.
At least eight people were killed on the spot and another person died in hospital as a result of a shooting attack by terrorists. Police believe that this is a crime motivated by hatred for a particular group, in this case is for the black people.
