    A suspect is on the run in Charleston, South Carolina after shots were fired into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal, an African-American church, around 9 p.m. The number of possible victims was not immediately clear, though the suspect may have attacked a Bible study group the church holds every week.

    Peter McCoy, a representative of District 115 in South Carolina, said on Twitter that nine people died in the shooting, but police did not confirm this claim. Eleven members of the church attended the Bible study.

    The suspect was described by the Charleston Police Department as a white male in his early 20s and of small build. He was last seen wearing a grey sweatshirt, blue jeans and Timberland boots.

    The Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal describes itself as the oldest AME church in the South with “one of the largest and oldest black congregations south of Baltimore, Maryland.” The church was founded in the early 1800’s and was once burned after officials suspected members of the church helped plan a slave revolt. The church is led by Reverend Clementa Pinckney.

    This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

    (CNN)Several people were killed in a shooting at an historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, a source close to the investigation told CNN.

    The shooter is still at large.

    The shooting took place Wednesday evening at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the oldest AME church in the South.

    Police haven't said how many people have been shot. But the source who spoke to CNN said several bodies were in the church that were yet to be identified.

    "It's really bad. It's a very bad scene," local pastor Thomas Dixon said.

    "Apparently the person just entered the church and opened fire. That part has not been fully articulated on what happened yet ... they are still looking for the suspect."

    Search on for suspect
    Police said the suspect in the shooting is a clean-shaven white man in his 20s, with a slender build. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and boots.

    Soon afterward, news cameras showed officers taking a man matching that description into custody, but police said they were still looking for the shooter.

    The department asked anyone with information to call 911 dispatchers

    I hope the guy doesn't post here. If he does, my guess Skylarbrie's race baiting threads drove him over the edge.

    It's an act of Terrorism for sure. You have folks sitting around studying the bible and 9 of them end up dead. There is no other way to describe it.

    I doubt it will happen, but it sure isn't gonna help race relations to get any better.

    I can tell you one thing about him. He sure doesn't like black people. I'm as guilty as the next guy for engaging in conversations about race, but the media

    seems to be forcing all this divisive shit down everyone's throat. Honestly I really just wish we could just move past the issue and focus on the real problems

    facing the world.
