ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Thousands turned out to pay tribute to South Carolina State Senator Clementa Pinckney, one of nine people killed in last week's shooting spree at a black Charleston church. In addition to being a state senator, Pinckney was also a pastor at the church. A caisson carrying the casket of the late Pinckney arrived at the Statehouse on Wednesday. His body is lying in state inside the rotunda of the state Capitol. Twenty-one year-old Dylann Roof is charged with murdering Pinckney, the pastor of Emanuel AME Church and eight others during a Bible study meeting. President Obama will deliver the eulogy at Pinckney's funeral on Friday.
