(AP) Dylann Roof, the gunman authorities say is responsible for killing nine people in a predominantly black Charleston, South Carolina, church Wednesday night, had been “planning something like that for six months,” according to his roommate.
Dalton Tyler, who said he has known Roof for seven months to one year, said he saw the white, 21-year-old suspect just last week.
“He was big into segregation, the Democrat Party, George Wallace and that other white racist stuff,” Tyler said. “He said he wanted to start a civil war and for Hillary Clinton to be president. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.”
