The man accused of slaying nine black members of a Charleston church will soon face a federal hate crime charge.

An official close to the case tells The Associated Press that a grand jury will indict 21-year-old Dylann Roof on Wednesday on a federal hate crime charge. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because the indictment hadn't been publicly announced yet.

Roof currently faces state charges including nine murder counts. Prosecutors haven't said whether they'll seek the death penalty.

The move has been expected since Roof's arrest after the June 17 shootings at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. 

Roof, who is white, appeared in photos waving Confederate flags and purportedly wrote of racial violence.
