The murderer is said to still be at large and is armed and dangerous and left the scene in a four door black sedan.

When does it end? The open season on black lives is heart wrenching. The act of this scumbag was terrorism plain and simple. He chose who he shot, how many and the location and all equates to some hate filled and misguided agenda. Remember South Carolina has capital punishment and an act this egregious and sickening is more than deserving of the his life.
