The family of the man accused of murdering nine people at a South Carolina church on Wednesday night is speaking out. Dylann Roof’s family just released this statement:
“Words cannot express our shock, grief and disbelief as to what happened that night. We are devastated and saddened by what occurred. We offer our prayers sympathy for all of those impacted by these events,” the statement says.
“Our hope and prayer is for peace and healing for the families of the victims, the Charleston community and those touched by these events throughout the state of South Carolina and our nation.”
The family goes on to ask for privacy and that all questions regarding Dylann be directed to his lawyer.
