Terrorism – Plain and Simple!!!

TIME

Nine people are dead after an attacker opened fire in a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina Wednesday night. “This is an unfathomable and unspeakable act by someone filled with hate, and with a deranged mind,” Charleston Mayor Joseph Riley said in a press conference Thursday morning.

Here is everything we know so far about the incident.

The church was Emanuel AME Church, a historically black church. Police chief Greg Mullen said “there is absolutely no doubt in [his] mind” that the shooting was a hate crime. Three men and six women were killed. Only one of them was taken to the hospital, and that person later died. The church’s pastor, state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, was believed to be among those killed, but the identities of the other victims have not been released. The state coroner will identify the victims to their families and to the public.
