St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, was the site of a massacre in March 2017.

One of the victims, Dylann Roof, was convicted of the murders of nine black parishioners in 2015.

In January 2018, Roof was sentenced to death for the murders.

He is currently on death row at the state’s death row.

The church is home to the South Carolina branch of the United Methodist Church.

Roof attended St Anne Church on the South Side of Charleston.

He was a member of the church’s congregation from 2003 until he committed the massacre.

He has since been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Roof’s father, Darnell Roof, attended St. Clement Church on Charleston’s South Side before becoming a member.

He also attended a Baptist church on the same block.

His wife, Rachel McAdams, who is white, also attended the church, and both were killed.

Roof was a student at Columbia University in Charleston.

The Charleston Post-Dispatch reports he was known for his rap music.

Roof, who was born in 1992, was a Christian who attended church and was baptized by his parents at St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Charleston in 2013.

He attended St Clement Church for six years before becoming active in the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the church.

He moved to North Charleston, a city near the church site, and attended a church service there.
