SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas – At least 26 people are feared dead and 20 more injured in Texas after a gunman opened fire at a church outside San Antonio on Sunday, according to KSAT.

The “mass shooting” was reported at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, which is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. The gunman has been fatally shot by police, according to Fox News.

Sheriff Joe Tackitt confirmed that there were multiple casualties and multiple fatalities. The shooter has been taken down, reported Wilson County News.

A witness told KSAT that a man walked into the church about 11:30 a.m. Sunday and opened fire at the crowd of people. According to the church website, Sunday morning worship services are held at 11 a.m.

Constable Thomas Silvas from Precinct 1 in Wilson County confirmed to Fox News there was a “mass shooting” situation and that officials were working on removing the bodies from the church, but did not specify the number of people who were dead or wounded.

“We have accepted a multiple number of patients from the shooting,” Megan Posey, a spokeswoman for Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville, 15 miles from church, told Fox News. However, she said she did not have a specific number. As a result of the mass trauma, she said doctors were assessing the patients.

Consequently, helicopters and emergency personnel were seen arriving at the scene. Moreover, the FBI is also on scene.

President Trump, who’s currently traveling in Asia, tweeted: “May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted shortly after the incident was reported: “Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act. Our thanks to law enforcement for their response. More details from DPS soon.”

Finally, the small Texas community of Sutherland Springs has a population of about 400 residents, according to Fox 29 San Antonio.
