Dylann Roof, the man accused of opening fire and killing nine people inside a historic Black church in Charleston, South Carolina told officials he wanted to start “a race war.”

Roof was taken into custody on Thursday morning in Shelby, North Carolina, less than 14-hours after shooting six women and three men inside Emanuel AME Church. A new Snapchat video shows Roof inside the church, sitting with the group for bible study before announcing that he was there “to shoot black people.”

One of the nine dead, the pastor, state senator, Clementa Picnkney. Pickney’s cousin, Sylvia Johnson, said that Roof came into the church asking for the minister. Johnson recounted to CNN what her friend, who was also a survivor said. “My cousin, being the nice, kind, welcoming person he is, he welcomed him to his congregation, welcomed him to the Bible study, and he sat there for an hour … At the conclusion of the Bible study, they just heard just a ringing of a loud noise, and it was just awful from what I heard,” Johnson said.

Johnson said that when her friend’s son asked the gunman to stop, he replied: “‘No, you’ve raped our women, and you are taking over the country … I have to do what I have to do.’ And he shot the young man.”

Dylann has been charged with 9 counts of murder and is expected in court today.
