Dylann Roof Went to Second Church After Massacre, Records Show

Dylann Roof, the white supremacist convicted in the horrific attack on the Emanuel AME in Charleston, S.C. reportedly stopped at another AME church on the night of the massacre, newly released court documents claim.

Though his intentions at the church were unclear, Global Positioning System evidence showed Roof went to Branch African Methodist Episcopal Church after he left Emanuel AME on June 17, 2015, WCIV reports. According to the government, Branch AME Church also had a sign that advertised a Wednesday night Bible study.

The details were not part of the federal case against Roof, who was last month sentenced to death.

In the motion, Roof's attorneys argued his case happened entirely in SC and involved only "incidental and everyday use" of areas affected by the commerce clause, like the internet or purchases from another state. Of Roof's 33 federal counts, which included hate crimes and religious freedom violations, 18 were eligible for the death penalty.

The documents contradicted defense arguments that there was no evidence suggesting a second church attack.

Roof, an avowed white supremacist, told Federal Bureau of Investigation officials that he was too exhausted after the attack at the Emanuel AME church to continue shooting, according to the WCIV report. Roof is also seeking a new federal trial, saying prosecutors didn't have jurisdiction to bring their case against him.

Roof gunned down nine parishioners at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston in June 2015.


Other documents show Roof confessed to a coworker in 2014 that he was racist. He awaits a state trial on murder charges.
