Hollywood is thinking about the victims of another tragic shooting spree in America.

A number of movie stars, TV stars and musicians took to Twitter to send their thoughts and prayers to those affected by Wednesday’s shooting at the historic Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Nine people were killed at the African-American church by a white gunman, now identified by the FBI as 21-year-old Dylann Roof, according to ABC News. The suspect, who opened fire on a bible study group, was taken into custody Thursday. Authorities are describing the church massacre as a “hate crime.”

2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called the incident “heartbreaking,” while Taylor Swift described it as an “unbearable loss of lives” and John Legend tweeted “My heart hurts.”
