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.

I think he looks more middle eastern than anything else.
no mask but the fake nose is very very odd
maybe the shooter’s nose was ethnic, not “white” enough to fit the narrative
That was my first thought as well. It is the right color shape and size to be a Hard Rock shirt.
I believe “swarthy” is the word you are looking for.
Shirt turned insides out? What’s with the area between legs?
Looks like he’s wearing a fake nose and glasses to disguise himself. The nose is white.
disguised as a Dude,
pretending to be another dude.
He is not blond - wrongly reported
Hate crime - can’t say that yet, but to kill is an act of hate
If that is real hair - someone will know him
If not - why the disguise
Skin color - olive
Motives - could range from hating blacks, Christians, maybe one of the attendees wouldn’t let this nut job date his daughter, political retribution, terrorism - who frigging knows
The problem I have is the press is trying to lock in a narrative with LIMITED ALBEIT emotionally compelling facts.
REMEMBER the DC Sniper - think back to the original press reports
Also, the hair looks like a wig. The color if the page boy hair is lighter than the hair on the back of his neck.
Or the nose has a piece of white tape on it
So the eye witness described him as a skinny white kid? Sounds pretty fishy to me. That kids sure as hell looks black, notice the color of his hair down the back of his neck. My guess that kid was other than white and the typical “eye witness” is suggesting something different. Sounds like a witness in the Mike Brown shooting claiming he had his hands up when shot. I’m not buying that eye witness story.
He must be caught--no matte what his motivation--and punished to the full extent of the law.
Oh, just damn.
Nachum: possible working theory?
A most cogent reminder, worthy of Free Republic.
Seems to me to have an olive skin complexion, and a somewhat large, "hooked" nose. Could be wearing a wig.
Were there 10 folks in all at this meeting? I hope the one in the hospital is able to tell the story.
How can you say at this point with 100% certainty that that is the reason this nut did what he did? Do you have some other agenda here?
