This broke late last night, but I wanted to await details. Nine people are dead after a gunman opened fire in one of America’s oldest black churches. The dead include the senior pastor and a state senator.
Be wary of early narratives of what happened here. The gunman is still at large and reports are still fragmentary. Rather than speculate, let’s just pray for the victims. I will update this post as confirmed news comes in.
Update: They appear to have caught the shooter, a 21 y/o white supremacist.
