The shooting occurred at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs in Wilson County. It comes just over a month after a gunman in Las Vegas killed 58 people and wounded hundreds attending an outdoor concert.

Around 20 people were also wounded in the shooting incident. "We believe he's a young white male, maybe in his early 20s. He was dressed in all black, tactical-type gear and was wearing a ballistic vest," said Freeman Martin, regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Ediz Tiyansan reports.
