As the gunman sits in police custody at a South Carolina detention center, video footage of his arrest in Shelby, North Carolina has been released to the public.

Dash cam footage from police vehicles show four officers approaching Roof’s car after he traveled nearly 250 miles outside of Charleston to Shelby. As Roof steps out of the vehicle, they frisk and handcuff him.

Roof has no reaction during the arrest.

Audio has also been released by authorities featuring motorist Debbie Dills, who spotted Roof in his vehicle in the North Carolina town and alerted her boss at Frady Florist. Her boss then made a 911 call to the Shelby Police Department.

Following the arrest, the 21-year-old waived extradition back to South Carolina, where he is currently being held on $1 million bail. He also faces nine counts of murder.
