Tywanza Sanders, 26, was the youngest victim of the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Just moments before Sanders and eight other churchgoers were gunned down, he shared a video (below) of the bible study group on the popular social media app Snapchat, Mashable reported.
The video, confirmed by Sanders’s friends, allegedly shows the suspected gunman, 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof. Though the church was historically black, Roof, who is white, was reportedly sitting in on the bible study group for an hour before he allegedly shot all nine victims at close range.
Sanders, nicknamed “Wanza,” graduated from Allen University in 2014. He was passionate about current issues facing black Americans, especially police brutality.
