A South Carolina judge set bond for accused Charleston church gunman Dylann Roof at $1 million during his first court appearance Friday.
Roof faces nine counts of murder, but the bond is only for the separate gun charge he is facing.
Appearing via closed-circuit TV, Roof confirmed he is 21 years old and unemployed.
The family members of a number of victims spoke during the hearing, including the daughter of one who told Roof, "I forgive you."
