The 120 lb Dylann Storm Roof fled the scene in a 2000 Hyundai Elantra GS, SC registration LGF330. Did Dylann want to get caught? He likely knew that there was surveillance cameras present. Roof's license plate is a distinctive specialty plate. He may have even communicated his intent to kill in advance of the shooting. In fact, he had apparently been at the bible study meeting for almost an hour before he fired the first shot. Furthermore, he apparently intentionally left a surviving witness to tell exactly what happened.
While questions remain, look for this case to be treated as a hate crime involving the murder of three men and six women.
