Shelby police on Monday released dashcam video of the arrest of Dylann Storm Roof, the 21-year-old white man accused of killing nine African-Americans during Bible study in a Charleston church with deep roots in the black community.
The video confirms the Shelby Police Department’s account that Roof surrendered meekly after he was approached by officers about 16 hours after the mass shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
A local florist and her boss had tipped authorities off about the location of Roof’s black Hyundai.
The video was released as part of a public records request by the Observer and other media outlets.
The video from last Thursday shows at least one patrol car following Roof’s Hyundai on U.S. 74 in Shelby before the four-door sedan pulls onto a gravel driveway.
