(Columbia, SC) – The Charleston church shooter’s teenage sister is accused of bringing weapons and marijuana to her South Carolina high school. Eighteen-year-old Morgan Roof is free on five-thousand dollars bond after she was arrested Wednesday at her high school in Columbia.
The school resource officer at A.C. Flora High School arrested the girl after a school administrator said she had marijuana, pepper spray, and a knife. In releasing her, the judge told the teenager she can’t return to school. Morgan Roof’s brother, 23-year-old Dylann Roof, is on death row at a federal prison in Indiana for the murders of nine people at an historic black church in Charleston, in June of 2015.
Roof shot and killed worshipers during a Bible study meeting at Emanuel A.M.E. Church. Roof said he killed them in hopes of starting a race war.
