Charleston police are searching for a man after multiple people were shot at a Calhoun Street church Wednesday night.

The shooting happened about 9 p.m. at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church at 110 Calhoun Street, according to Charleston police.

The suspect is described as a clean-shaven white male, about 21 years old. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt or hoodie, blue jeans and Timberland boots, Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Police have not released how many people were shot, though sources say multiple people have been killed.

A source said the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the church’s pastor and a South Carolina state senator, was among those shot. His condition was not immediately known.

Heavily-armed police have surrounded the area around as they search for the suspect. The FBI, State Law Enforcement Division, the coroner’s office and multiple police agencies are on the scene.
