    At least 26 people killed in shooting at Texas church

    At least 26 people killed in shooting at Texas church

    At least 26 people were killed in Sunday's church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said at a press conference.

    Many others were wounded, said Freeman Martin, a regional director with the Texas Department of Public Safety, with victims ranging in age from 5 to 72 years old.
    Among the dead is the 14-year-old daughter of the First Baptist Church's pastor, Frank Pomeroy, according to his wife, Sherri Pomeroy, the girl's mother. The couple were traveling out of state when the shooting occurred.
    Authorities have not said what may have motivated the suspected shooter, who was later found dead in his vehicle.
    The shooting has devastated the small Texas town east of San Antonio, described as a place where "everybody knows everybody."
    Here are the latest developments:
    The shooter has been identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, according to two law enforcement sources who have been briefed on the investigation.
    Multiple weapons were found in the shooter's vehicle, according to another law enforcement source.
    Speaking from Japan, President Donald Trump condemned the shooting as an "act of evil" and called it "horrific."
    "We don't know names of any of the victims at this time," said Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt in a press conference Sunday evening. As victims are identified, next of kin will be notified, he said.
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered flags across the state to be flown at half-staff through Thursday.
    The attack
    Without naming Kelley, Martin described the shooter in Sunday's press conference as a young white male who was dressed in all-black "tactical-type gear" and wearing a ballistic vest.
    Martin said the suspect was seen in a Valero gas station across the street from the church in Sutherland Springs at about 11:20 a.m. local time on Sunday morning.
    The suspect left the gas station, crossed the street, exited his vehicle and began firing before he entered the church, Martin said.
    As the suspected shooter left the church, a local resident used their own rifle to engage him, Martin said. The shooter then fled the church, while the citizen pursued him.

    After a brief chase, law enforcement later found the suspect dead of a gunshot wound inside his vehicle. Authorities said they don't know if the wound was self-inflicted or the result of the resident who fired on the suspect, Martin said.
    The shooter was killed after a brief chase north into neighboring Guadalupe County, Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office spokesman Robert Murphy said earlier on Sunday.
    Wow. I missed this one till just now.

    I hope our San Antonio posters, friends, and family are ok. Obviously 26 peoples families will not be.

    According to this story, the shooter was kicked out of the Air Force for assaulting his wife and child.

    A succubus is a Lilin-demon in female form, or supernatural entity in folklore that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even in death.

    You do realize The Onion is a satire site, don't you?

    Of course I know that. But it's still a good point well made. Speaking as an outsider the only conclusion I can make is that the US has decided this is ok.

    We've not decided it's ok. That's ridiculous.

    Sadly, it's a cost of freedom.

    We lose thousands of lives a year in traffic fatalities, including DWIs. Do we think those deaths are ok since we aren't banning cars and alcohol?
