In June of 2015, 21 year-old Dylann Roof joined a bible group at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. After about an hour, he opened fire killing nine black parishioners. 

The young white supremacist was charged with nine counts of murder. On Thursday, he was found guilty by a federal jury.

According to reports, the jury convicted Roof of nine counts of hate crimes resulting in death, three counts of hate crimes involving an attempt to kill, nine counts of obstructing the exercise of religion resulting in death, three counts of that charge with an attempt to kill, and nine counts of using a firearm to commit murder during a crime of violence.

Roof will stand in front of the same jurors in early January for a sentencing decision.
