WLTX reports the suspect in the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting was taken into custody in North Carolina after a more than 12-hour manhunt.
Nine people were killed Wednesday night in Charleston's historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. The church is one of the nation's oldest black congregations.
The Department of Justice and the FBI are investigating the shooting as a hate crime. Officials say the suspect spent an hour at a prayer group with his victims before opening fire.
