Multiple people killed in Texas church shooting

Multiple fatalities have been reported in a shooting that took place inside of a Wilson County church during Sunday service.

The number of victims and the extent of their injuries was not immediately clear.

The church is a white, wood-framed building with a double-door at the entrance and a Texas flag on a pole at the front area, according to its website, which was down shortly after the shooting.

"She was one attractive, special child", he said.

Police and paramedics responded to First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, TX around late morning Sunday on word of an active shooter at the premises.

A law enforcement source told CBS News that at least 15 people were shot in the incident.

Devin Keen, another local officer, said "there were kids involved" in the shooting, including a two-year-old.

Texas governor Greg Abbott said: "Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act".

Connally Memorial Medical Center spokeswoman Megan Posey declined to say how many patients were being treated at the hospital, but said the number was less than a dozen.

Agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were heading to Sutherland Springs, a town of about 400, those agencies said.

A man has opened fire in a Baptist church in the U.S. state of Texas, killing at least 20 people, according to authorities. Our thanks to law enforcement for their response.

At least six helicopters took victims to nearby hospitals.

"May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas", tweeted President Donald Trump, who is in Japan on his first trip to Asia as president.
