TIME TO DIE: Supreme Court Denies Appeal By Charleston Church Shooter

  • The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied an appeal by Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof, leaving in place his death sentence for the 2015 shooting deaths of nine Black congregants.
  • The court’s denial came in a brief unsigned order without explanation, as is customary.
  • Roof had urged the justices to review his case to resolve several technical legal questions that have produced different answers in federal appeals courts across the country, and which Roof claims affected his case.
