Texas church shooting: 26 killed by White Terrorist

An armor-clad gunman opened fire inside a rural Texas church on Sunday, killing more than two dozen people in the largest mass shooting in the state’s history, officials said.

Twenty-six people were killed during the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said at a news conference Sunday night.

“We don’t know if that number will rise or not, but we know that’s too many and this will be a long, suffering mourning for those in pain,” he said.

The shooter was later found dead, officials said. Sutherland Springs is located 30 miles east of San Antonio.

Law enforcement officials identified the gunman as Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, of neighboring Comal County. Texas officials would say on the record only the culprit was a “young white male.”

There was no immediate information on the reason behind the shooting, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackett said. Federal officials said the gunman’s motive was unclear.
