Dylann Roof, has been found guilty on all 33 counts in the federal trial in connection with the June 2015 shooting at a Charleston, South Carolina, church.
He showed no emotion as the verdict was read.
Roof, who is white, was accused of fatally shooting nine black parishioners during a Bible study at the predominantly black Emanuel AME Church on June 17, 2015. According to the federal indictment against him, Roof, 22, entered the church armed and “with the intent of killing African-Americans engaged in the exercise of their religious beliefs.”
The trial next moves into the sentencing phase, in which the same jury will determine whether or not Roof will be sentenced to death or life in prison. That will begin on Jan. 3.
