Dylann Storm Roof walked into a historically black church in South Carolina on Wednesday night and opened fire, killing 9, including the reverend. After fleeing, the 21-year-old has reportedly been apprehended in North Carolina, about a three hour drive from Charleston.

The media should be ashamed. 3 hours to get on air and then gives detailed suspect description WITHOUT mentioning his race. #Charleston
