COLUMBIA, South Carolina (AP):
The sister of the man sentenced to die for killing nine people at a South Carolina church in 2015 has been arrested at her school and charged with bringing pepper spray, a knife and marijuana on to the campus.
Morgan Roof, 18, was arrested Wednesday at A.C. Flora High School after a school administrator contacted the school resource officer, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release.
She is charged with two counts of carrying a weapon on school grounds and one count of simple possession of marijuana.
A judge set her bond at $5,000 and said she could not return to the school. She was screened for a public defender. It was not known if she has an attorney yet.
Investigators say Roof also posted a Snapchat about the National School Walkout day protest against gun violence that alarmed fellow students, but no charges were filed for that message.
A new pedestrian bridge collapsed on to a highway at a Miami-area college Thursday, crushing at least five vehicles under massive slabs.
Several people were seen being loaded into ambulances and authorities launched search and rescue missions.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue tweeted that "multiple" people were injured when the Florida International University bridge collapsed. Authorities said they were working on confirming the numbers.
The $14.2 million bridge crossed over a busy seven-lane road highway that divided the university's campus from the city of Sweetwater.
The 950-ton span was installed on Saturday to great fanfare.
