6:06 pm
pictures of his car and the police put that out and asked for people to give tips and the tips poured in, almost immediately from friends, even from family members saying we believe this is dylann roof. and then, of course the critical thing when the driver in north carolina and shelby sees a car that she thinks matches his description, she calls her husband and 911. they stop the car and he is arrested. but you are right, it was very fast and it was because of their decision to release these pictures and they had the pictures because the church had surveillance cameras. >> now, the crime was in south carolina but they called him in north carolina. what next? where did they try him? >> we have seen this played out, waived his right to a extradition hearing he will be brought back to south carolina. the where part is clear. he will be tried in south carolina. the who part is unknown. who will try him? will it be the federal government or will it be the state? now, both the state and federal government could bring charges that would bring the death penalty. the state has murder statutes.
