Shooting at Charleston, SC, church, June 17, 2015

Upcoming: Dylann Roof is due to be arraigned on federal charges including hate crimes at 11 a.m. ET this morning.

It's also a possibility, according to @Reuters sources, that family members of victims, some of whom delivered emotional statements of forgiveness at his last appearance, will again speak.
