This morning, America woke up to the horrific news of a massacre in South Carolina. Dylann Roof of Lexington, SC is the suspected gunman who killed nine people at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church located in Charleston.

He was caught this morning during a routine traffic stop in Shelby, NC (about 245 miles away from the place of the crime), and taken into custody by the North Carolina police. Roof had a loaded firearm in the vehicle, but it is not yet clear whether it was the weapon that was used in the shooting.

Always one to speak out when necessary, Killer Mike took time to comment on the tragedy via Twitter and responded to a few of his followers. Read his tweets below and keep Charleston in your thoughts.
