Police and federal law enforcement agencies were in the midst an all-out manhunt Thursday morning for the gunman they say is responsible for killing 9 people in a Charleston South Carolina church Wednesday night in what police described as a hate crime.
The suspect opened fire on a bible study group at the historic black Emanuel AME Church on Calhoun street, killing eight people in an "unfathomable." Two other people were rushed to the hospital where one died.
Early Thursday morning, police released pictures from surveillance footage showing the suspect, a younger white man, approximately 21-25 years old, as well as the car he was driving, police said.

Or he had one or more partners who knew the layout of the church, knew when the prayer meeting was going to be, and thoroughly briefed him.
If this was a planned hit, the shooter would have been imported from far away, been briefed, done the op, and would be out of town in a different car within the hour, and at least a thousand miles away before morning.
Perhaps, much like George Zimmerman was a White Hispanic, this guy may be a “white negro”. Never know what spin the media will put on this. White Arab, White Pakistani, White whatever — as long as the media is able to report that he is “white”
Nose is a very different shade from the rest of his face. Fake Groucho nose, donned when he knew he would pass a camera?
That looks like a reflection of a face behind the suspect in the first picture.
True, the prayer meeting wasn’t announced, but it should be pretty widely known that most Protestant churches, particularly Black churches, traditionally have Wed. night Bible study, prayer meetings and/or choir practice. That said, WHY was THIS church and THIS pastor singled out?
Judged by facial characteristics and skin tone, the shooter could be Baltimore assassin Snoop from "The Wire". The shooter's hair might be straight, but aren't there wigs and hair straighteners?
That’s a Democrat haircut.
With 90% certainty, you can guess political affiliation by brand of auto driven, i.e., Subaru drivers, Civics, etc. ALWAYS liberals.
Or a tattoo. Or a fake tattoo to confuse descriptions.
Agree, getting some light flare from the background.
There is a much clearer pic on Twitter that is of the same image, but not cropped. He is not wearing boots, but low cut sneaker type leather shoes, Timberland does make such shoes.
He has a fanny pack, and it appears he is wearing a “plate” under his sweatshirt. Contour does not look right for a SAPI plate, could be some homebrew body armor.
I still do not see a large nose. However, I am starting to see what could be an Asian, Pacific Islander or maybe even a Mexican.
The more I look at the picture, the more it looks like a rubber mask and super straight haired wig.
Newer Hyundai do have that eyelash headlight look.
Terrified people on the floor, cowering behind or hiding under pews.
Does SC have numbers on their front plates? Our state does not. The front plate, if there is one, is usually some novelty plate. If SC does require a license number on both front and back then either the guy covered them up or the authorities are lying. That plate is in full view and they should be able to read the numbers.
Nope, not a Pontiac.
