CHARLESTON, S.C. — Congregation members say the historic black church where nine people were killed is going to re-open for Sunday morning service.
Cassie Watson said Saturday that the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church will open at 8:30 a.m. for Sunday school and 9 a.m. for a service.
Watson was one of more than a dozen people to enter the building after a cleaning crew had worked on it. Other congregation members also confirmed the church would open Sunday.
Authorities say 21-year-old Dylann Roof fatally shot nine people at the church on Wednesday night.
