Gunman captured on Snapchat video moments before turning gun on Bible study group

A stunning video has surfaced of the Bible study group in progress in Charleston, South Carolina, moments before police say Dylann Roof  turned his rage on those in attendance, killing nine African-American churchgoers.

A white male in the video who looks to be the alleged gunman is seen sitting calmly among the soon-to-be victims.

Taken by the youngest victim to die in the tragic shooting, Tywanza Sanders, it was posted on the social media site Snapchat, Mashable reports.

Sanders, 26, died in the attack.

The video was confirmed by four friends of Sanders, according to Mashable.

“I didn’t notice until now that Dylann was just a few people away from Wanza,” one of the friends said. “You can slightly see him in the right corner of the screenshot.”

CNN’s Don Lemon reported on the video, including several still shots.
