CHARLESTON, S.C. — A judge has granted a temporary protection order for the accused Charleston church shooter, according to WACH.

The temporary order asks that any evidence that will used against Dylann Roof, the man accused of the shooting at Charleston’s Emanuel AME church, not be made public before the upcoming hearing.

Roof is facing nine counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

All of the 911 recordings, the medical examiner and coroner reports, and any witness statements were barred from being released to allow Roof a fair trail, according to WACH.

Roof will appear in court July 16 at 10 a.m. in Charleston.
