    This booking photo provided by Richland County, S.C. Public Information Office shows Morgan Roof. Roof, 18, was arrested Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at A.C. Flora High School after a school administrator contacted the school resource officer, and charged with two counts of carrying a weapon on school grounds and one count of simple possession of marijuana. She is the sister of Dylann Roof, who was sentenced to die for killing nine people at a South Carolina church.

    Deputies say the sister of church shooter Dylann Roof has been arrested for bringing drugs, pepper spray and a knife to her South Carolina school.

    The Richland County Sheriff's Department tells WIS-TV 18-year-old Morgan Roof was arrested Wednesday after an administrator at A.C. Flora High School had contacted a school resource officer.

    Roof is charged with marijuana possession and two counts of carrying weapons on school grounds. A judge set her bond at $5,000. She was screened for a public defender. She is not allowed to return to the school.

    Investigators say Roof also posted a Snapchat that alarmed fellow students, but was not arrested for it.

    School principal Susan Childs posted a letter to parents on the school's Twitter page explaining what occurred while students walked out to remember the 17 killed in the Parkland, Florida, Valentine's Day school shooting.
