CHARLESTON, SC (WMBF) - An uncle of Dylann Roof, suspected Charleston church shooter, said the family is going “through a nightmare unlike anything you can imagine.”

[Dylann Roof] has left the family with a legacy/reputation that you can never change, the Midlands man told WMBF News.

Roof's father gave him a gun for his last birthday, the uncle said. Dylann has been living back and forth between parents.

The uncle said he hopes Dylann “gets exactly what he deserves from law enforcement.”
