Texan church's pastor daughter a victim

Public records show an address in New Braunfels.

People in the small town of Sutherland Springs, outside of San Antonio, were attending services at the First Baptist Church when a gunman walked in and murdered 25 parishioners and injured several more in the span of what witnesses said was about 15 seconds, according to the New York Times.

Gamez told NBC that there were multiple deaths and injuries but an exact number was not available.

Sheriff Joe Tackitt said there have been multiple fatalities from Sunday's incident, including the gunman.

Police say that Kelley was shot after a auto chase with officers.

He said the Texas Rangers have taken over the investigation.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said agents from its San Antonio office were responding to the shooting. The hospital is in Floresville, Texas.

Ezekiel Elliott is expected to play on Sunday after yet another turn regarding the legal case around his six-game suspension. After last Sunday's win, Elliott said his camp felt "confident" the running back would play the balance of the 2017 season.

Sutherland Springs is 30 miles (48 kilometres) south east of San Antonio. One other patient is on the way to that hospital. The killer was fatally shot a short time later in a neighboring Texas county, the official said.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott condemned the incident labelling it as an "evil act".

Federal law enforcement swarmed the scene to offer assistance, including ATF investigators and members of the FBI's evidence collection team. "More details from DPS soon", Abbott tweeted.

One of the victims of the mass shooting was the church's pastor Frank Pomeroy's daughter, Annabelle.

Paul Buford, pastor of nearby River Oaks Church, said his service was underway when first responders in his congregation were called to the scene. The gunman is reportedly dead.

Abbot is en route to Sutherland Springs to speak with law enforcement and the victims. "I am monitoring the situation from Japan", Trump said in a tweet. No name has been released and no motive identified, although authorities are minutes away from holding a press conference.

The community of Sutherland Springs, where the population numbers in the hundreds, is a small unincorporated area in Wilson County approximately 30 miles southeast of San Antonio.
