Suspected church gunman’s family issues statement

News

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The family of suspected church gunman Dylann Roof has released a statement saying they know people are asking questions about Roof, but they do not want to say anything because victims’ families are still grieving.

The first funerals began Thursday for some of the nine people killed in what police say was a racially motivated attack at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston last week.

Roof’s family’s statement says they will do their best in the coming days to answer questions but they feel it would be inappropriate to say anything at this time.
