Dylan Storm Roof, a 21-year-old a Columbia-area resident, is the suspect in a mass shooting at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston that left nine people dead, including state senator and pastor Clementa Pinckney. Roof was named as the suspect by the FBI around 9 a.m. Thursday morning, twelve hours after his shooting rampage. He was captured by Shelby, N.C. law enforcement shortly thereafter. Roof has since admitted to police after his capture that he wished to start a race war and Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis told CNN's Nick Valencia that the church members "were killed because they were black."
