2015 Charleston Church Shootings Dylann Roof

Planned attack for six months

18 Jun, 2015

Dalton Tyler, who says he has known Roof for seven months to one year, says he saw Roof last week.

[He had been] planning something like that for six months…He was big into segregation and other stuff. He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.

Tyler says he met Roof through a good friend. He also says Roof and his parents have an “on and off” relationship, and that they had bought him a gun but never allowed him to take it with him until this past week.
