2:01 am
extremely dangerous. but somehow managed to get away. this morning, abc's liz kreutz is on the scene for us, joining us by phone. and i can imagine, it is still pretty intense there, in terms of this search. >> reporter: hi good morning, t.j. and arena. yes, i'm out here a few blocks away now from where the church shooting happened. the reason the media and all of the people who came out here tonight have been pushed a few blocks away is because there was actually a bomb threat. it is no longer -- the police chief said that is no longer the case. but because of that we have been put a few blocks away from the shooting. we just wrapped the first press conference with the police chief and the charleston mayor, where we did learn the news that nine people are deceased now. there were two people that were brought to the emergency room. one, unfortunately, died and the other survived but we have not been told any information on the victims, who they were.
2:02 am
there was a very well-known and beloved poster at the church at this time. we do not know his state at this time either. it's just a very sad and somber feeling here right now. there's prayer vigils, people singing. it's just very sad. >> what's the sense, next, liz, in the investigation? we know they are ongoing, looking for the shooter. but how is this community pulling together? we know the mayor coming out, saying this was one heinous act, but they're asking for the help of the community. what is the sense of the ground right now? >> reporter: they are. charleston just in april had the walter scott incident. i mean there's a lot of emotion emotions in this city. it's very tense. one of the pastor elders of the churches came out and said they have 50 preachers on the ground right now. i mean the flood of people that heard about this shooting and came out here within minutes is really remarkable and the community is pulling together. they plan to be here almost all
2:03 am
night, through the morning. they have prayer vigils planned every hour. there's truly a sense of community. but also, it's so sad because, i mean, they're just -- you know, it's sort of what more can they do? they're saying if we can't be safe in our church where can we be safe is what one man said. >> and to that point, where can they be safe tonight? what's the guidance to the community with a man on the loose who is capable of shooting up a church, killing nine people? do police have any indication that this was his only target? could other people be targeted? what is the community supposed to do right now? >> reporter: absolutely. there's a huge amount of fear here. the police chief wouldn't go into specifics on what they thought he could do next. except he just said he's extremely dangerous, and there is a manhunt under way to find him. they believe it's a hate crime. i think what's also interesting is this church is just a few blocks away from king street which is one of the
2:04 am
biggest touristy streets in charleston. all of the shops and the bars and restaurants are on this street. it's really the heart of charleston. there's a courtyard marriott almost just across the street and a little over from the church where families were gathered on vacation in charleston and came back from dinner and saw the whole hotel and church cordoned off. and i talked to families, a dad with two kids on vacation who were terrified. now they say there's this man on the loose and this hotel is sort of becoming the staging ground for the coroner and some of the people involved. and so now all these people on vacation have gotten roped into this too. and i think there's just a lot of fear but there's no sense on what to do because they don't -- the police don't seem to have any idea where he is at this point. >> and we do know, liz, the police chief said they are offering a reward for any information that could lead to this suspect. we want to thank you. liz kreutz on the ground in charleston, south carolina. we will keep you updated throughout the night and this morning as new information comes

3:31 am
extremely dangerous. but somehow managed to get away. this morning, abc's liz kreutz is on the scene for us, joining us by phone. and i can imagine, it is still pretty intense there, in terms of this search. >> reporter: hi, good morning, t.j. and reena. yes, i'm out here a few blocks away now from where the church shooting happened. the reason the media and all of the people who came out here tonight have been pushed a few blocks away is because there was actually a bomb threat. it is no longer -- the police chief said that is no longer the case. but because of that, we have been put a few blocks away from the shooting. we just wrapped the first press conference with the police chief and the charleston mayor, where we did learn the news that nine people are deceased now. there were two people that were brought to the emergency room. one, unfortunately, died and the other survived, but we have not been told any information on the victims, who they were. there was a very well-known and
3:32 am
beloved pastor at the church at the time. we do not know his state at this time either. it's just a very sad and somber feeling here right now. there's prayer vigils, people singing. it's just very sad. >> what's the sense, next, liz, in the investigation? we know they are ongoing, looking for the shooter. but how is this community pulling together? we know the mayor coming out, saying this was one heinous act, but they're asking for the help of the community. what is the sense of the ground right now? >> reporter: they are. charleston just in april had the walter scott incident. i mean, there's a lot of emotions in this city. it's very tense. one of the pastor elders of the church here came out and said they have 50 preachers on the ground right now. i mean, the flood of people that heard about this shooting and came out here within minutes is really remarkable, and the community is pulling together. they plan to be here almost all
3:33 am
night, through the morning. they have prayer vigils planned every hour. there's truly a sense of community. but also, it's so sad because, i mean, they're just -- you know, it's sort of what more can they do? they're saying, if we can't be safe in our church, where can we be safe, is what one man said. >> and to that point, where can they be safe tonight? what's the guidance to the community with a man on the loose who is capable of shooting up a church, killing nine people? do police have any indication that this was his only target? could other people be targeted? what is the community supposed to do right now? >> reporter: absolutely. there's a huge amount of fear here. the police chief wouldn't go into specifics on what they thought he could do next. except he just said he's extremely dangerous, and there is a manhunt under way to find him. they believe it's a hate crime. i think what's also interesting is this church is just a few blocks away from king street, which is one of the biggest touristy streets in
3:34 am
all of charleston. all of the shops and the bars and restaurants are on this street. it's really the heart of charleston. there's a courtyard marriott almost just across the street and a little over from the church where families were gathered on vacation in charleston and came back from dinner and saw the whole hotel and church cordoned off. and i talked to families, a dad with two kids on vacation who were terrified. and they're saying now there's this man on the loose, and actually this hotel is sort of becoming the staging ground for the coroner and some of the people involved. and so, now all these people on vacation have gotten roped into this, too. and i think there's just a lot of fear, but there's no sense on what to do because they don't -- the police don't seem to have any idea where he is at this point. >> and we do know, liz, the police chief said they are offering a reward for any information that could lead to this suspect. we want to thank you. liz kreutz on the ground in charleston, south carolina. we will keep you updated throughout the night and this morning as new information comes in.
