Charleston Church Gunman Dylann Roof Has Been Captured

Dylann Roof has been apprehended.

According to NBC News, the 21-year-old white man suspected of shooting up Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina was caught Thursday morning (June 18) in Shelby, N.C.

“I can confirm there is a suspect in custody,” U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the outlet.

Roof allegedly killed six women and three men at the historically African American church after attending a prayer meeting. One of the victims was the church’s pastor, Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, a married father of two.

Our thoughts go out to all the victims’ family and friends during this horrific tragedy.

    He looks exactly like what you would think someone who would walk into a church and start shooting would look like. A Psycho. Good luck in prison dude, I’m sure you wont encounter any black men in there!

    CALL HIM A TERRORIST. If he was muslim or black or brown, that headline would have read TERRORIST. CALL HIM WHAT HE IS: A TERRORIST.

    Anyone who causes terror is a terrorist irregardless of the color of their skin. In the totalitarian “religion” of islam, terrorism is the tool muslims use to put fear in people’s hearts the way the criminal muhammad did when he decided he wanted to become famous and create his own religion. isis is the true face of islam.

    People like this have no soul or balls. Easily kill unarmed people but I bet when the cops rolled up on him he got on his hands and knees within seconds. They will put him in the nut farm for a few years and that’s about it. RIP to all that lost their lives. Prayers to their family and friends

    He looks deranged. Now JJ please let this be the last of any reporting on this guy. This is an entertainment site and you do not need to contribute to this crazy person’s 5 minutes of celebrity for killing innocent victims.

    What has islam got to do with this? This WHITE man is a religious nut job and an extremist. His views motivated him to commit savage and racially motivated acts of murder. He IS A TERRORIST.

  • Ana

    I never said he wasn’t a terrorist. He is a racist you could say that, but I don’t think he was yelling out the name of Jesus Christ while killing the people he killed so I don’t know where you got the idea to compare him to the muslims or mention religion at all. The only people worshiping Jesus were the African – Americans that got killed in this case. This guy is a racist. Period. Much like you.His racist views motivated his actions. It doesn’t matter what race the racism is coming from, it is the same shitty mentality and equally dangerous no matter what race it comes from.
