Yikes! An eerie new Snapchat video has surfaced, showing Dylann Roof sitting quietly in bible study at the Charleston, SC church he targeted, before opening fire and killing nine attendees.
After the arrest of Dylann Roof, 21, new details have emerged about his horrific alleged massacre of nine Christians during a group bible study. Now, a newly-released video from one churchgoer’s Snapchat shows the chilling view of Dylann sitting soundly during the meeting, patiently waiting to make his attack. So creepy!
Tywanza Sanders, 26, was the youngest bible study student to be killed at Emanuel AME Church when a gunman — believed to be Dylann — opened fire on June 17. Minutes before bullets were shot, Tywanza made a Snapchat video, showing Dylann sticking out like a sore thumb with his light brown hair and pale skin, among the black members of the meeting. The religious establishment is historically African-American.
With Dylann appearing in the right corner of the clip, Tywanza captioned the upload: “Bible study knowledge planter.” While friends found it slightly amusing at the time, according to The Daily Mail, they are now deeply disturbed watching it back. To watch the the video, CLICK HERE.
As we all know, Snapchat only allows you to watch a video once, with only one chance given to re-watch. After news of Tywanza’s death emerged, a friend of the college student who had received the video played it again — and filmed it on his phone to preserve permanently.
“It shows them in the church having the meeting…u can even see the terrorist in the corner for a short [second],” tweeted Elroy Brown, one of Tywanza’s pals who got to see the seconds-long Snapchat.
Tywanza had graduated in 2014 from Allen’s University division of business administration in Columbia, SC. Unfortunately, his life was cut short alongside Sharonda Singleton, 45, DePayne Middleton, 49, Cynthia Hurd, 54, Myra Thompson, 59, Ethel Lee Lance, 70, Daniel Simmons, 76, and Susie Jackson, 87.
When the tragic news broke, many celebrities spoke out on social media, expressing their grief and anger over Dylann’s alleged deplorable actions. Taylor Swift, Questlove, Kerry Washington and more all tweeted how they were deeply saddened over the hate crime and how they were keeping the victims in their thoughts and prayers.
Our thoughts and prayers also continue to go out to the families and friends of the victims of this shooting.
