black church shooting

A massive manhunt is underway for a crazed gunman who shot and killed 9 people as they prayed inside a historic black Charleston, S.C. church. Six females and 3 males were killed in the massacre on Wednesday night. The gunman reportedly allowed survivors to leave the church so they could tell people what he had done.

The FBI and local authorities are calling the shooting a hate crime.

Surveillance video from outside the historic black Emanuel AME Church in Charleston shows a young white male entering the church around 8 p.m. Wednesday. The gunman is described as approximately 21-25 years ago, 5'-9", slender build, with sandy blond hair in a distinctive bowl haircut. He was wearing a grey sweatshirt, black jeans and Timberland boots.

Dot Scott, president of the Charleston Chapter of the NAACP, told CNN that witnesses told her the shooter attended a prayer meeting with about 12 church members for an hour before he produced a handgun from a black fanny pack and opened fire.

The gunman was quoted as saying, "You people" among other things that suggest the shooting was a racially motivated crime.

After the shooting, the gunman drove away in a black sedan with a "very distinctive" license plate. Authorities declined to say what was on the plate.

"We're committed to finding this horrible scoundrel to make sure he pays the price for this horrible act," said Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr. during a press conference on Thursday.

CNN interviewed a cousin of church Pastor and state Senator Clementa C. Pinckney, who is among the 9 dead. "It is devastating that someone would go into God's house and commit such a crime," said Kent Williams.

Senator Pinckney leaves behind a wife and 2 daughters.

"This is outrageous!" said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo this morning. "This is the last place you would think you would be in danger… This is beyond horrific. This monster needs to be tracked down and brought to justice."

Police say they are pursuing "hundreds of leads" in the case.

    This is so disturbing and the fact that some of the comments on CNN were mainly people arguing over whether this man is really white is even more disturbing...I am praying for the family as well as the church members and the community. Such a tragic crime.

    I feel hurt, sympathy and admittedly hatred this morning. Going to need to step away and say another prayer for God to order my steps, heal MY heart, and be a muzzle for my mouth. Because I've already encountered a "FOOL" who just may make me lose it behind this.

    Really? Smh. Some people say some really phucked up things because they don't understand how life would be if the shoe was on the other foot. For example, white people love to say there's no racism and excuse chit away by saying black people "bring things on themselves", but they don't understand the feeling of losing a child to a racist aggressive cop or some other crazy phucker. Can't even open their eyes to the blatant systematic discrimination. And then when its time for people to get convicted . . .

But I guess I didn't realize how their generation is seeing this TWICE. My parents are from Bama. Said he still recalls how scared all the kids were to go to church after 16th Street got bombed in Birmingham, and the 4 girls died. He was 15. So for that generation they are already exposed to this hatred. Not immune to it or indifferent to it. He was sad it's a topic for his kids and grandkids. More of a "haven't we done this already, why is it still happening" type thing.

  • LilBit

    I agree. They are reporting that he may have sat in the bible study/prayer meeting for up to an hour before he gunned those people down. He knew exactly what he was doing... No mental illness at all!

    2 Peter 3:9- The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.

  • KDub

    This was me too sis

  • iWasteTime

    WISTV is reporting that the suspect is 21 year old Dylan Storm Roof. He is from Eastover.
    He was arrested earlier this year on drugs charges.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    We gonna be alright though... Lord knows, our elders and ancestors managed to overcome even more bs :hug:

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    It's something every day and people don't understand that while we place our focus on Rachel,Catliyn and the Trashdashians, it's real like battles that we have to fight.

  • KDub

    Pic of him already too

    He white.

  • Chellie141508

    And his lilly white parents setting up the best lawyer money can buy then they will identify him...not before..white privileges...he will never go to a regular prison either...

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
    We got to cut out all this playing church and Preachers of LA, Preacher's Daughters, Preach and we need to get back to the old wooden pews and real true prayer services.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Get this assholes pic out..... Got this from his FB page. But everything else is private.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    **returns hug** Good point! If they can withstand lynchings, police dogs, fire hoses, and blatant hatred and still live and prosper, then we'll get through this too.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Shootings and all out violence I cant offhand recall. But there was a slew of black churches burning in the south as recently as late 1990's-early 2000's.

  • KDub

    Which is also a hate crime.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    New post.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Interesting to see who you follow on SM is posting about this and who is not. Silence speaks volumes.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    LOL, Me too Jenie!

  • Ms. YaYa

    Morning Sandra...I think I am liking this new format!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Sandy, Stephen Curry is not mixed. Both of his parents are black. His mama creole, but black none the less. Just like Mama Tina. I ain't heard you call Beyonce and Solange half breeds or mixed. Not even brotha Jules who got the creole gene strong just like Steph.

  • Ms. YaYa

    Exactly because after all of the police shootings I had to tell my son to scratch everything I had told him before about the steps to take when he is stopped by the police. Told him don't reach for your insurance, registration, or drivers license until "The Man" say so...Sad world we are living in today

  • Girlx117

    My prayers to all who lose a loved one in this sensless tragedy..

  • MandaPanda

    But let's all worry about what race Rachel Dolezal really is because that is what's really important! I am looking at you FAUX news!

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    Do you call him a hlaf breed because you thought one of his parents was another race and not black, or because he was light skin?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I just said that on my FB page :( They will bring up how bad his childhood was and how he forgot to take his meds :( I really think they are trying to create a race war and will start filling up those concentration camps that we've paid for with tax dollars. Has anyone read Behold A Pale Horse?!?! This shyt was written in the 90's and the author was killed and the book was illegal

  • Tiffany Miller

    It is sad but sometimes we have to be observant and aware. Did it not seem suspicious that a white non member was at your bible study without introducing himself? He was a coward because he knew it would be the easiest place being that your defenses are down.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    You know even though this is true ..... the chuccch doors is open to everyone ... these good folks probably were just being humble non judgmental and allowed him in with open arms... actually that is what your suppose to do ..... either way I agree partially .... just sad

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    :cosign: Not for this bs today....AT ALL!! Any other time they would be talking about current events at the office. Its quiet as hell this morning

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I think the "you people" comment before he open fired set me off :(

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I have yet to hear the media label him as a #thug like the "UNARMED" kids that have been killed and phucked over by the system

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Sooooo a WHITE MAN out killing AAs.then we got a WHITE WOMAN buying up spray tan to trick him into thinking she's AA!!!!(throws up hands)LORDT ONLY IN AMERICA!!!!
