The Police have released CCTV images of the of the white gunman who killed nine people in a race-hate crime at an African American church in South Carolina and have warned that he is extremely dangerous. The police described the killer as a young white male, aged between 21 and 25 and five foot nine in height.
They also revealed how the suspect fled the scene in a ‘distinctive’ getaway car, which they believe is still in the Charleston area.
The suspect opened fire at a weekly bible study group at the 150-year-old Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston but spared one woman so she could tell the world what happened, according to eye witnesses.
A 5-year-old girl also survived the attack after her grandmother told her to play dead when the shooter suddenly started firing after entering the church and sitting quietly in the study meeting. The city has now been placed on lockdown.
