Viewing for Pastor Slain in S.C. Church Shooting Held at State House

The body of Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the pastor and state senator slain last week in the Charleston church massacre, was carried by horse-drawn caisson Wednesday to the South Carolina State House, past a Confederate battle flag that flies outside, NBC News reported. In the second-floor lobby of the Capitol, where the Pinckney's body lie, a black drape was placed over a window, blocking view of the rebel flag. Pinckney was one of nine black people shot to death at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston by Dylann Roof, a white man. President Barack Obama will give Pinckney's eulogy on Friday.
