What We Know About Dylann Roof, the Charleston Shooting Suspect

Authorities have identified 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof as the young, white male who they believe opened fire on a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday night, killing nine.
Storm is still at large as the Department of Justice and FBI launch a hate crime investigation.
Witnesses said the suspect sat with attendees of the prayer meeting for an hour before he turned his gun on them. Three men and six women were killed. Three people survived. One woman, who said she was as cousin of the church's pastor, Sen. Rev. Clementa Pinckney, told NBC News late Wednesday night that the shooter reloaded five different times and told a survivor, "I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go."
