‘All Hands on Deck’ Search for Killer

The FBI has joined the search for the suspected gunman who shot and killed nine members of a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night. The gunman seen on video is described as a slender white male, approximately 21 years old, wearing a gray sweatshirt or hoodie, blue jeans, and Timberland boots. Police have not released the make and model of the car, but are encouraging people who see a vehicle that matches the image on uncovered surveillance footage to call 1-800-Call-FBI. “That’s what we need, we need information,” Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen said. “This is a all-hands-on-deck effort with the community as well as law enforcement.”
