At 1:47 p.m. September 29, a church member checking on Salem Black River Church, 1060 N. Brick St., reported that he discovered the graffiti.

Investigators released images from surveillance cameras of the suspects, generating tips.

A church member said the door to the sanctuary had been kicked in, but it didn't appear anyone went in. It is 25 miles from Shaw AFB to the church. An estimated $3,000 of damage was done by the vandals, according to WTOC.

Investigators aren't sure why the four airmen from nearby Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter chose to damage the church, which appears on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hotel evacuated, over 100 firefighters and helicopters battle on
The Twelve Apostles Hotel was being evacuated on Thursday evening as fires spread around the Oudekraal area. Two of the helicopters are coming down from the Eastern Cape while the 3 was on its way from George.

"The United States Air Force does not condone acts of vandalism", 1st Lt. Alannah Staver, 20th Fighter Wing chief of public affairs, said in a statement Friday, according to the station. "We feel we are a part of this community, are proud to serve here, and we are disappointed to hear of this incident".

Deputies also have not yet said what they think the motivation behind the incident was.

Salem Black River Presbyterian Church was founded by Scotch-Irish settlers in 1759. But Sheriff Anthony Dennis has said his department has had to deal with other problems caused by people who say the church is haunted.

The church was one of about a dozen houses of worship on a list kept by Dylann Roof as he researched where he wanted to commit his racist massacre in 2015.
