We are now learning new information about the suspect in the Charleston, South Carolina church massacre.

Officials say the man suspected of shooting and killing nine people has been identified as 21-year-old Dylann Roof of Lexington, South Carolina. Roof was taken into custody on Thursday morning in Shelby, North Carolina after a citizen tip.

On Wednesday night, the alleged gunman opened fire inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston during bible study and killed six women and three men, including the pastor, state senator, Clementa Pinckney.

According to reports, Roof told his intended victims, “I want to shoot Black people” leading people to believe that the shooting was premeditated.

It has also been confirmed that the 21-year-old has a legal history. He was reportedly out on bond after a string of recent arrests on drug and trespassing charges. We are also hearing that Roof received a 45 caliber gun from his father for his birthday in April.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
