SHELBY, North Carolina — After he was arrested during a traffic stop in North Carolina, officers bought Charleston church shooting suspect Dylann Roof some food from Burger King.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Roof, who confessed to killing nine people in the massacre, told officers he was hungry, so they got him food.

Roof was accused of shooting and killing nine people in a Bible study group at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night.

Several hours later, a woman in North Carolina spotted Roof driving on the highway and alerted police.

The Observer reports that when police pulled him over, he rolled down his window and gave them his ID, identifying himself as Dylann Roof.

He’d been on the run for a total of 16 hours, making a stop at a gas station around 5:50 a.m. to get gasoline and cash, along with a bottle of water and a bag of chips. He was stopped by police at around 11 a.m.

“He was very quiet, very calm. He didn’t talk,” Ledford told the Observer. “He sat down here very quietly. He was not problematic.”

He was later returned to South Carolina to face his charges.
