The second church advertised a weekly Bible study meeting that night.
Jannette Alston, a lifelong member of the small church, said Bible study was called off that night.
Because he had to leave his day job late, the pastor of a SC church canceled his weekly Bible study class. Evidence shows he stopped at the church and turned off his Global Positioning System data for several minutes. The Branch AME church also held a Wednesday night Bible study, according to the documents, ABC said, but the study may have been over by the time he got to the church. "I dread to even think about that", he said.
During a lengthy confession the day after the shootings, Roof told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents he was too exhausted after the Emanuel killings to carry out any other violence.
"I thank God that he had us protected", Berry said.

This deal doesn't shift the landscape in the Western Conference, or help the Rockets match up differently with Golden State. When Harden sits, the offensive rating for the Rockets drops to 105, a good mark for some teams but paltry for Houston.
Roof, who was armed, drove to the second church, which "supports the inference that Defendant meant to continue his racially motivated violence at Branch AME Church that night and, more specifically, that his intended targets were African-American congregants at a church", prosecutors stated in the court document filed in September.
Defense attorneys argued there was no evidence to suggest Roof was going to continue his attack at another church.
During Roof's trial, prosecutors presented evidence showing he had lists of other black churches in his vehicle when he was arrested in Shelby, North Carolina.
Roof, 22, a self-described white supremacist, was convicted on 33 counts in federal court in January, including hate crime and religious freedom violations, and was sentenced to death. Roof is also seeking a new federal trial, saying prosecutors didn't have jurisdiction to bring their case against him.
