Felon Arrested For Planning 'Dylann Roof'-Style Attack After Buying Gun: FBI

A felon is behind bars after authorities say he purchased a gun from an undercover agent, who he allegedly told he wanted to kill a group of black people "in the spirit of Dylann Roof." Authorities arrested Benjamin McDowell in Myrtle Beach, the FBI said, after the 29-year-old former convict with alleged white supremacist ties made anti-Semitic and other racist statements on Facebook before illegally purchasing a Glock handgun, according to an affidavit.
