Charleston Shooter: Judge Orders 600 Person Jury Pool

A South Carolina judge has ordered the summoning of 600 people in the trial of a white man accused in the shooting deaths of nine Black churchgoers in Charleston last June.

The state is seeking the death penalty in the trial of 21-year-old Dylann Roof.



Roof is facing nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and a weapons charge in the shooting that occurred during bible study at Emanuel AME Church.

The trial is set to begin July 11.
