Dylann Roof is awaiting trial in the killing of nine people in a church back in June. Now the FBI is targeting Roof's friends.
According to a local paper, federal authorities arrested 21-year-old Joey Meek Jr. Thursday. The FBI previously told Meek he was suspected of concealing information and making false statements relating to the investigation of the shooting.
Meek, who lives with his family in a trailer, offered Roof a place to stay in the weeks before the shooting. He told authorities Roof didn't give him any indication he was planning a massacre — except for one drunken night.
