The Killer!Nine Are Killed in Charleston Church Shooting; Gunman Is Sought - The New York Times: "A white gunman opened fire Wednesday night at a historic black church in this city’s downtown, killing nine people before fleeing and setting off an overnight manhunt, the police said.
At a news conference with Charleston’s mayor early Thursday, the police chief, Greg Mullen, called the shooting a hate crime.
“This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience,” he said. “It is senseless and unfathomable that someone would go into a church where people were having a prayer meeting and take their lives.”
The police said the gunman walked into the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church around 9 p.m. and began shooting."
Drudge keeping it real!
