“At least 26 people were killed at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday, law enforcement confirmed. The shooter is also dead following a brief chase.

“As a state, we are dealing with the largest mass shooting in our state’s history,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said.

Here’s what we know — and don’t.

What we know

The shooting reportedly occurred at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, around 11:20 am local time, law enforcement said.

At least 26 people were killed, although it’s not clear if that number will rise, Abbott said at a press conference. Approximately 20 others were injured.

The shooter is dead following a car pursuit by a local resident. Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told CNN that the gunman shot himself after the resident hit him.

The dead victims’ ages range from 18 months to 77 years old, a Texas Department of Safety official said.

First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy’s 14-year-old daughter and all of his family’s close friends were killed in the attack, Pomeroy told Houston-based ABC13.

The shooter has been identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, law enforcement officials told CBS and NBC News.

Kelley was previously in the Air Force, but he was court martialed and received a bad-conduct discharge for allegedly assaulting his spouse and their child, according to NBC News.

Local, state, and federal law enforcement are on the ground.

There is no other threat in the area at the time, according to law enforcement.

Sutherland Springs is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. It’s an unincorporated community with a population of about 600, according to CNN.

The church regularly posts videos of its services. They show a vibrant community, with parishioners singing, playing electric guitar, and talking about topics ranging from their faith to riding a motorcycle.”

  1. Top 5 states with pro-gun laws have the lowest crime rate. Top 5 states with strictest gun laws have the highest crime rate.

  2. this is because murder is legal and its to thin the herd when it comes to peoples until you understand that nothing can be done to change it

    thx for this ha bisky vid and at this point i really dont care the world is already retaliating against us and the metahumans will survive the rest of you will die

  3. Yet another tragedy which the alt-right exploited by lying about the shooter's motives and saying he was an antifa which is complete BS.

  4. im a Christians , and young turks were making fun of christians during te time when christians were speaking against the lgbt. so i really have a ard time beliving in there sympathy, since i feel as though tey are just going to make fun of christians as "crazy"

  5. Mr. Willeford did not stop the suspect from killing anyone in or around the church. Mr. Willeford did not stop the suspect from leaving the scene.
    Was he brave? Of course. Could the same effect have been accomplished with just a cell phone? Most likely.

  6. In the First Amendment it speaks of the individual right of freedom of religion, the right of a free press, the right of the people to assemble, and the right to petition the government for redress of grievances.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    The Third amendment protects an individual right right not to be forced to house troops, except in times of war, and as congress shall determine by law.

    No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

    The Fourth Amendment protects individuals from illegal search and seizure. And that applications of warrants must be made upon probable cause. Not probable suspicion.

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    The Fifth Amendment protects an individual right from self incrimination and double jeopardy.

    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    The Sixth amendment protects an individual Right to a speedy trial, defense counsel, the right to confront their accuser, and to present witnesses in their defense.

    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    The Seventh amendment protects the individual right of a trial by jury. This was originally intended with regard to civil and not criminal trials, but has been incorporated by SCOTUS decisions to a right of trial by jury.

    In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

    The Eighth Amendment protects an individuals right from excessive bail, fines, and cruel and unusual punishment.

    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

    The meaning of the ninth amendment has been heavily debated for some time with no clear consensus of opinion. However, it does, again, reference the rights of the people and not the state.

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    The Tenth amendment specifically delineates the difference between the Rights of the People and the states.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

    Now, with all of this, and the Founding Fathers saying what they said in their writings and speeches, making clear distinctions between the "state" and the "people", all of a sudden, in just the last 5 decades, now we are to belive that the Bill of Rights doesn't guarantee Individual Rights. Oh, my mistake, the Bill of Rights does guarantee Individual Rights, all except the Second amendment, which includes, again, one of the few time in the Bill of Rights, the phrase, "the Right of the People". Just like in the First Amendment. And just like the Fourth amendment.

    In other words, in the First Amendment and the Fourth, "the Right of the People" are individual rights, but, now, the founding fathers didn't know what they meant with the Second Amendment when they state "the Right of the People"?

    That is hubris on a massive scale that you think you know better than what they meant since they specifically stated their intent.

  7. This is my challenge to all the gun grabbers. Show me ONE instance where the Founding Fathers equated "the People" as being the "State" and a "collective" as opposed to Individuals and I'll rethink things. Just one instance where the Founding Fathers stated that the Bill of Rights were NOT Individual Rights, but the collective rights of the people of a state. Show me just ONE.

  8. I'm a vet and served to protect all of the Rights in the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment will not be repealed and gun control is a losing issue for anyone that calls for it, especially in congress.

  9. Remember guys; somewhere out there is someone who's sole purpose in life is going to be to meet you, destroy your life, take your stuff, and leave you and your family a broken mess within the first 5 minutes of meeting you. There's a chance you may never recover. Your sole job in life, is to make sure, that when you meet this mother-fucker, you are so prepared, so ready, that his moment of meeting you, is the worst moment of his life!! This person is alive right now, and you'll never know when they are coming, what's your response going to be?

  10. I think we should take into account that this criminal was stopped by an NRA certified gun safety instructor. I think he deserves status as a hero and maybe he serves as an example of how gun owners and gun rights are very important in America.

  11. I predict, shockingly, the body-count price for gun control is much much higher and we just haven't hit it yet. Right-wing nutjobs can't empathize unless they are personally affected. So America probably needs ~150 million right-wing nutjobs (or all ~4 million NRA nutcases) affected by mass violence in some personal way before clamoring for change becomes serious

  12. Guns are not the deal its a fuckin loser w bad thoughts and act on them. Your so funny getting all pissed off you will never get the protection (guns) away from Americans keep trying. If guns were gone they would use trucks-bombs-aircraft.

  13. More guns, more guns, more shootings. But, people still don't think there's a correlation. Same people that think endless war will bring about peace—ya, just like continuously hitting your head against a wall will cure a headache. When your country solves all of its problems with weapons, it's not a wonder why the citizens solve their problems the same way—they're just following the "leaders."
