People gather at the Confederate Museum during a protest in Charleston, South Carolina on June 20, 2015. The group gathered to protest violence and discrimination against African Americans as well as the mass shooting at the Emanuel AME Church. A website apparently created by Dylann Roof emerged Saturday in which the accused Charleston church shooter rails against African Americans and appears in photographs with guns and burning the US flag. His arrest warrant revealed how on June 17 he allegedly shot the six women and three men, aged 26 through 87, multiple times with a high-caliber handgun and then stood over a survivor to make a “racially inflammatory” statement.
