Survivors of Wednesday’s horrific mass shooting at a South Carolina church played dead to avoid the gunman’s attention, congregants said Thursday as more details were revealed about the crime and the shooter’s hatred for African-Americans.
Nine people were killed Wednesday when 21-year-old Dylann Roof walked into a Bible study class at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, stayed until the session was about to end, then opened fire. Roof was arrested Thursday in North Carolina and extradited back to South Carolina ahead of a scheduled Friday bond hearing.
Cynthia Taylor, whose 87-year-old aunt Susie Jackson was among the victims, told the Associated Press that shooting survivor Felecia Sanders told Taylor that Sanders had played dead as she lay on top of her granddaughter to protect her during the shooting. Another survivor, a trustee of the church, said Roof told her he would let her live so that she could tell others what had happened.
