Police in Charleston, South Carolina released images Thursday of the man suspected of killing nine people in a shooting at a historic black church.
Security camera footage shows a slender young white man with dark blond or brown hair in a distinctive bowl-type haircut, and wearing a grey sweater.
Police said he is about 5 foot, 9 inches tall and is in his early 20s. The suspect was seen leaving the church in a black sedan, police said.
The gunman was on the run Thursday after fatally shooting at least nine worshippers, including the pastor, in a predominantly black church in downtown Charleston, in what police called a hate crime.
