Dylann Roof Delivers Chilling Final Words To Jury, Sealing His Fate

Dylann Roof, the 22-year-old convicted of gunning down 9 black church members in cold blood, delivered final words Tuesday that must have sent a chill through the jurors veins.


Acting as his own attorney in the trial for his 2015 Charleston, South Carolina massacre, Roof gave a brief closing statement where he said, "In my confession to the FBI I told them that I had to do it, and obviously that's not really true. ... I didn't have to do anything," according to CNN.

And then he added, "But what I meant when I said that was, I felt like I had to do it, and I still do feel like I had to do it."

He half-heartedly asked the jury to spare his life.

They responded by handing down a death sentence.

Prosecutors revealed some more horrifying facts about the young white supremacist:

The shooting was highly premeditated; Roof had scouted out the Emmanuel AME Church three times.

He was invited into the Bible study and sat with the members for 40 minutes before opening fire.

He shot the nine church members over 75 times, reloading seven times as he repeatedly fired bullets into their bodies.

Roof made it clear that he felt his victims were innocent but that he has not regretted what he did.

Roof will now face state murder charges, and prosecutors have made it clear they want a death sentence for him on those charges as well.
