Following the arrest of the Charleston shooting suspect, Dylan Roof, he was taken to Burger King for a free meal by police officers after Roof complained he was hungry. According to Shelby police officer Jeff Ledford “He was very quiet, very calm, he sat down here very quietly, He was not problematic.”
The 21 year old Roof had been on the run for 16 hours before he was arrested for murdering nine worshipers at the historic Mother Emanuel AME Church. The police were able to track Roof down due to a tip they received from a florist who happened to recognize his picture. When the police pulled him over in his black Hyundai sedan which had a Confederate States of America license plate Roof reportedly rolled his window down, handed over his id and said “I’m Dylan Roof.” A .45 caliber handgun was located inside the vehicle, which he had purchased with birthday money he received from his parents. Roof told police he was heading to Nashville because he had “never been there before.”
Roof has now been charged for the nine murders from his shooting rampage at a Bible study session, which he has confessed to. The latest revelations on his twisted past show he had written a hate-charged manifesto saying he had “no choice” but to wage bloody war against blacks. He posted it online and last modified it just hours before the shooting.
