The perp was apparently given the gun by a relative just a month after he was arrested for drugs and trespassing.  He might have gotten a weapon another way, but yikes.

A fund has been set up, in fact two funds.  Here is the donation information.  Donors can give in one of two ways:


Mother Emanuel Hope Fund.  This city’s fund will provide direct financial support for the funeral and burial expenses of the nine victims of the senseless tragedy. Any funds remaining after the funeral and burial expenses are paid will be donated directly to the Emanuel AME Church for use as determined by its governance board.  Donations to this fund are not tax-deductible.  These can be made in one of three ways.  A website is also in the process of being created, although it may or may not be up-and-running yet.  www.motheremanuelhopefund.com
