At least 26 people killed in shooting at Texas church

At least 26 people have been confirmed dead after Sunday’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. About twenty people were reported wounded with victims ranging from 5 to 72 years-old. After the shooting, about 100 family members of victims gathered in a community center next to the church, waiting for news of their loved ones.

The Shooter

Authorities have not said what may have motivated the suspected shooter, who was later found dead in his vehicle. The suspected shooter has been identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, according to two law enforcement sources who have been briefed on the investigation. Kelley was a member of the US Air Force and served at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge. Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 for assault on his spouse and assault on their child.

Martin said the suspect was seen in a Valero gas station across the street from the church in Sutherland Springs at about 11:20 a.m. local time on Sunday morning. The suspect left the gas station, crossed the street, exited his vehicle and began firing before he entered the church.  As the suspected shooter left the church, a local resident used their own rifle to engage him, Martin said. The shooter then fled the church, while the citizen pursued him.
