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.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
