Texas mass shooting may claim the church too

Texas mass shooting may claim the church too

Christina Osborn and her children Alexander Osborn and Bella Araiza visit a makeshift memorial for the victims of the shooting at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church, on November 12, 2017, in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Twenty-six people, including an unborn child and nine other children, were gunned down at the First Baptist Church in Texas' worst mass shooting.

Mourners visit a makeshift memorial for the victims of the shooting at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church, on November 12, 2017, in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The pastor of the tiny Texas church where a madman massacred 26 people and wounded 24 last Sunday wants the building torn down. It weighs about 150 to 200 pounds, Zamora says.

Mr Pence told the crowd that the attack was the worst mass shooting at a church in American history and called the gunman "deranged".

Investigators have said the shooting appeared to stem from a domestic dispute involving the attacker, Devin Patrick Kelley, and his mother-in-law, who sometimes attended services at the church but wasn't there the day of the shooting.

Richard Rodriguez, 64, and his wife, Therese, 66, both cancer survivors, were buried in a corner of Sutherland Springs Cemetery with 250 family members and friends looking on. What they saw there will affect them the rest of their lives, Jackson said.

Based on evidence at the scene, investigators believe Kelley died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after he was chased by Willeford and another man and crashed his auto. Half the victims had connections to the Air Force. The Air Force's chief of staff, Gen. David Goldfein, said 12 of those killed were either members of the Air Force or had family ties to it.

No final decisions can be made without consulting congregants, but Pomeroy discussed turning the site into a memorial for the dead and putting up a new building on property the church owns, Oldham said. He said many veterans choose to live in the San Antonio area because of its deep military ties, and families tend to migrate to the city's surrounding rural areas. "We've been to war zones and seen that tragedy firsthand". "You never think this will happen to you".

Earlier, Mr Pence said US President Donald Trump had ordered federal agencies to provide extensive help to the investigation, including 100 on-site FBI agents. She said about two dozen quickly said they would.

People from around the state and distant corners of the country traveled to show their support for the small Texas community, home to about 600 residents.
