edit on 18/6/15 by JustMike because: Mod edit: title edited to show 9 dead vs originally reported 8. This was NOT an error by our OP, who correctly went with what was first reported. The true figure was released later.

I am there. My friend's a bartender at the hotel where they are bringing in the families of the victims.

Apparently It was a white guy who walked into an all black church and just started shooting.

I am less than a mile away right now.

ETA: 8 is the number she gave me for dead.

A white terrorist believed to be in his 20s apparently went into a Black Church and started shooting. About 8 people dead. #southcarolina

Apparently they are searching for the shooter.... so the shooter got away?

Does this mean another Boston style manhunt? Better get my popcorn!

They have police and dogs searching for him. They don't know who he is. As far as I know terrorist is an odd label, I haven't seen anything about motivation yet.

Won't be that big of a search imo, but yes he is, and the search is big.

Really hope this isn't spun into a racial issue...that is unless they actually find KKK paraphernalia in his house or something...

Charleston is where the song 'we shall overcome'was first sung during the civil rights movement era you bet the agitators may make something of this.

A white male allegedly walked in and killed 8 black church goers..
Additionally: "Emanuel AME is the oldest black church south of Baltimore. Played an important role in abolition & civil rights"

How else can it be spun other than a racially motivated attack?

I know assumptions don't get much love here,
But this shooters appearance fits a particular profile that we've seen before.
Seriously (coming from a thin white guy) - why are so many of the US mass shooting perpetrators skinny white guys??

As opposed to a person doing what has happened since the dawn of time and that's killing and creating havoc?
