CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Travelers passing through South Carolina’s busiest airport will be able to reflect on last year’s shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

Plans were unveiled Thursday for a memorial in an alcove at the Charleston International Airport terminal.

Local media outlets report the memorial will include stained glass etched with the names of the victims and survivors. It will also include a table with a Bible open to the Scripture being read at the time of the shootings. The memorial will also have photographs of the church and a seating area.

The $175,000 for the memorial is being raised through private donations. Nine people were shot and killed during a Bible study at the church last June.

Dylann Roof faces federal and state charges in the deaths.
