Gunman Kills Worshipers In Small-Town Texas Church

A gunman dressed in black tactical gear massacred at least 26 worshipers and wounded 20 others at a white-steepled church in Texas on Sunday, carrying out the latest in a series of mass shootings that have plagued the United States.




The lone suspect, also wearing a ballistic vest and carrying a Ruger assault rifle, fired into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and kept shooting after he went inside. Sutherland Springs is in Wilson County, about 40 miles (65 km) east of San Antonio.


The victims ranged in age from 5 to 72 years old, and Among the dead was the 14-year-old daughter of Pastor Frank Pomeroy.

After the shooting, the gunman, described as a white man in his 20s, was fired on by a local resident with a rifle. The suspect dropped his assault weapon, and fled in his vehicle, said Freeman Martin, regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety.


Soon afterward, the suspect crashed his vehicle near the border of neighboring Guadalupe County and was found dead inside with a cache of weapons.


It was not immediately clear if the suspect killed himself or was hit when the resident fired at him outside the church, authorities said.


“We are dealing with the largest mass shooting in our state’s history,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said at the news conference. “The tragedy of course is worsened by the fact that it occurred in a church, a place of worship where these people were innocently gunned down.”


The suspect’s identity was not disclosed by authorities, but law enforcement officials who asked not to be named said he was Devin Patrick Kelley, described as a white, 26-year-old man, the New York Times and other media reported.


The massacre came just weeks after a sniper killed 58 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The shootings have stirred a years-long national debate over whether easy access to firearms was contributing to the trend.


President Donald Trump said he was monitoring the situation while in Japan on a 12-day Asian trip.

*Trump must be confused.............I dont know what is so difficult..take their gun licences away...I just have this impression that in America,you can find a gun faster to buy than water to drink.

May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

Stella Dimoko, this has nothing to do with President Donald Trump! There are bigger cabals like the ARC and their numerous affiliates who are behind guns distribution and licensing.

Mass shooting happens all the time in the US because those people are gun freaks. Taking their licenses away will still not save them.
Americans love their guns like they love their big burgers.

If they weren't licensed to carry arms, more pple would have died, cos no one would've been able to shoot d idiot back.

So many death reading this morning. What a world we are living in.

RIP to all who passed away. What do the man has against the church. Instead of them to go for deliverance, they will just go about killing people as the devil has really possessed them.

I pity people that allowed the devil to use them satisfactorily

Every massacre in America points towards the need for gun control. I wonder what America/Americans stand will lose with gun control.

Oh now I'm scared 😢😢

When a blog visitor suggested nass should do something about having guns, this was what came to my mind. Please we don't need it here. This shootings in America became worse since this gun policy came about making it easy for every tom, dick and harsh to own a gun.

May the souls of the departed rest in peace

This might not be an Immigrant. This might not even be an ISIS shooting... Now Trump needs to understand that all his worries are not coming from Africa and Islam.
Those darn guns are the problem.
I was watching something on Cardi B's page. A fan of hers was in a bath tub filled with all sorts of riffles dancing to Bodak Yellow.
Guys, he had every single gun you can ever think of.. Some were even immersed in water.
Thats some scary sh**
RIP. Someone cannot worship God in peace again.

So they said it came weeks after the Las Vegas shooting, sidelining the recent Manhattan "terrorist attack". These events are same, committed against innocent souls by lunatics who find a baseless reason to kill. Yet again, they will classify this white guy as a depressed guy bla bla bla. Can someone check the meaning of terrorism in the dictionary?

The problems of America are just too much and the main one is the liberty they believe they have. I've had a few kids tell me to my face that they can behave badly cos they are allowed to do whatever they want. I had to beat one child one day when I couldn't take it again. When they are allowed to do anything, taking lives when they feel like it is no big deal. America really needs to look inward. The casualties from the terrorists that they are so focused on are far less than those killed by fellow americans.

Everybody in america is unhinged, crazy & has potential for erratic behaviours. Especially the whites who have serious problems of self entitlement & total disregards towards another person's life.

* mental health is #1 issue here in America & Canada. The system places priority over jobs, employment & business more than making investment on the psyche or mental health of the adult working population.
As long as u pay tax at the end of the year, ur deemed as fit & normal. Even if ur killing & harming all ur family members, co workers or neighbors, ur deemed as alright unless when ur a beggar, vagrant or homeless on the street.

The world in general is not safe. President Trump, should review his policies to identify that which triggers this type of ugly behaviors form the citizens and device a means of cubing it off.
