Grand Jury Indicts Dylann Roof on 33 Counts Including Hate Crimes

Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced on Wednesday that grand jury has indicted Dylann Roof, the confessed gunman who killed nine people during a Bible study at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina on 33 federal counts including hate crime charges.
Roof, 21, went on what federal authorities are calling a "racially motivated" shooting spree during the June 17 rampage at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Roof, who is being held without bond, has a tentative trial date of July 11, 2016.
He could face the death in South Carolina, Lynch said adding "no decision has been made whether to seek that penalty."
