WASHINGTON - The man charged in the deaths of nine black churchgoers in a Charleston, South Carolina, shooting last month will face federal hate crime charges, medial outlets reported on Wednesday, citing US law enforcement sources.

The federal charges against Dylann Roof are expected to be made public later on Wednesday, according to National Public Radio. The New York Times also reported the pending federal charges.

Roof, 21, has already been charged with nine counts of murder in South Carolina in the June 17 shooting. If found guilty, he could face the death penalty. He also faces three counts of attempted murder.
