27 dead and 30 injured in Texas church shooting [Bonus Apparel Discussion]

At least 20 dead and 30 injured in Texas church shooting


At least 20 people have been killed and 30 injured in a Texas church shooting today, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

The alleged shooter is dead, and it appears there is no longer an active threat at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, about 40 miles southeast of San Antonio, police told ABC News affiliate KSAT in San Antonio on Sunday afternoon.

Connally Memorial Center in nearby Floresville told ABC News it has received six people from the shooting.

The FBI and ATF are heading to the scene, ABC News has learned.

Outside the church, police have formed a perimeter and flooded the grounds with emergency and police vehicles, according to KSAT.

A small group of people were seen standing together, holding hands as tears overtook an attempt to pray, a KSAT reporter said.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement, "The thoughts and prayers of all Texans are with the people of Sutherland Springs as tragic reports come out of First Baptist Church."

"Please join Angela and me as we pray for those impacted by this horrific shooting, Paxton said.

Nothing we can do to stop this. Good thing we're such a big country that the daily mass shootings only affect a few of us.

Fucking hell--whenever a new shooting thread appears, I think it must be a bump of an old one.

Sutherland Springs has ~640 people. If the death toll (27) remains unchanged, that means approx. 4% of the community is gone. Just like that


Nothing you can do, folks.

So fucking sad.

Thoughts and prayers should solve it though, since nothing more can be done.

Local station in SA was interviewing a pastor of another church a couple of miles down the road who said “Unofficially, I can say about half of their congregation is now gone.”

Yeah, as sick as this is, nothing will change. If nothing changed after an elementary school of or children were murdered, this won’t change anything.

Is the shooter white or brown? I need to know so I can adjust my level of outrage.

First Charleston, now Sutherland, TX.
It is almost like god doesn't exist, or he is completely indifferent to human suffering.

Removed all of this as "Chris Ward" was bad information.

Unsubstantiated.
If the shooter is white, it will be considered just a crime, and forgotten about unlike if he was brown, sad. Let's concentrate on banning Muslims instead

A local Congressman is claiming that the shooter is not from the area. If that is the case, the guy I posted a picture of above is not the guy.
