Video Footage Shows Shooting Suspect In Church

The youngest victim of a shooting at an historic Charleston church shared a Snapchat video from the bible study group before he and eight others were fatally shot.

In the video by Tywanza Sanders, 26, a white male can be seen sat among black people at the Emanuel Africa Methodist Episcopal church group.
That man is believed to be Dylann Roof, 21, who is accused of killing the nine worshippers at the South Carolina church. He is said to have been in the prayer group meeting for an hour before opening fire.
One of Mr Sanders' friends told Mashable: "I didn't notice until now that Dylann was just a few people away from Wanza.
"You can slightly see him in the right corner of the screenshot."
A survivor of the attack said the gunman reloaded five times and when asked to stop shooting, he replied: "I have to do it. You rape our women and you are taking over the country. And you have to go."
Felecia Sanders, who also survived the attack, has described how she played dead while lying on top of her granddaughter to protect her.
Sylvia Johnson, a cousin of the Reverend Clementa Pinckney who was killed in the shooting, said the gunman asked her if he had shot her.
