Shooting reported at church in Charleston, South Carolina

A gunman opened fire on Wednesday evening at a historic African-American church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, and was still at large, a police official said, following a media report that as many as eight people may have been shot.

Police described the suspect as a 21-year-old white man in a sweatshirt or hoodie and jeans, according to Charleston newspaper The Post and Courier. It cited unconfirmed reports that as many as eight people may have been hit by gunfire.

No matter the reason, our thoughts should be with those lost and their families.

This happened a ton of times before, but were often swept under the rug. It was the best place to commit mass killings of blacks because they often gathered there to hang out & socialize with other black folk.
I just hope they don't sweep this under the rug like they did back then. And jail, not bail, the murderer.

So a white suspect and a historic African American church, huh? Yeah, this sounds like a major hate crime. I hope they catch the gunman soon and he gets the worst punishment they can give him.

So terrible; for both a mass shooting and a mass shooting at a church. So messed up...

It just says 8 people shot, not 8 dead.

But also said some may have died. This happened very recently. I'm sure once they release another article on this they'll announce how many of them ended up dying.

I sincerely hope for the best for the victim's families. I really hope the news doesn't turn this into something uglier than it is and leaves them alone soon. Heartbreaking story.

It seems 9 people died. 8 guests and the pastor. Unless they meant 8 people died, including the pastor. Either way, I don't see why people feel that going to shoot up a place (any place) is a good idea at all.
