The shooter reportedly opened fire on the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on 5 November, killing 26 people and injuring 20.

He then he killed himself, and was found with an iPhone SE and an LG 328BG.

Apple has refused to create a “backdoored” version of iOS to help FBI investigations on previous occasions.
