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.
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.
May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.
