Charleston Shooting

Family members and survivors of the 2015 massacre by white supremacist Dylann Roof sued the FBI after its background check failed to stop Roof from buying the gun he used.
The shooting survivors sued the government over the failure of an FBI-run background check system to prevent the purchase of the murder weapon.

“I went to that church in Charleston and, uh, I did it,” Roof said of the shooting that killed nine.
He's accused of fatally shooting 9 people in a Charleston, South Carolina church.
Earlier this month, defense attorneys had raised concerns for the first time about whether Roof was able to understand the nature of the proceedings against him and to assist in his defense.
Another inmate reportedly punched Roof several times on his way to the shower.
