Charleston

On June 17, 21 year-old Dylann Storm Roof entered the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, and committed the most violent racially motivated attack in the U.S. since the Civil Rights Movement. Using a .45 caliber handgun, the caucasian Roof killed nine and wounded a tenth.  All of the victims were black.

“I believe this is a hate crime,” Police Chief Greg Mullen told reporters at a press conference the night of the shooting.

Fox News chose to report the massacre the following morning from a different perspective.
