    Default At least 27 dead in Texas church shooting

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41880511

    At least 27 people have died after a gunman opened fire at a church in Texas during Sunday services.

    The attack happened at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs in Wilson County.

    A police commissioner at the scene confirmed that at least 27 people had died. Several others are reported to be injured.

    The San Antonio FBI branch said its agents had been deployed, and there was no indication of the gunman's motive.

    The FBI also said that while only one shooter was reported, it was looking into other possibilities.

    More info now showing on the BBC article

    At least 27 people have died after a gunman opened fire at a church in Texas during Sunday services.

    The attack happened at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs in Wilson County.

    A police commissioner at the scene confirmed that at least 27 people had died. Several others are reported to be injured.

    The San Antonio FBI branch said its agents had been deployed, and there was no indication of the gunman's motive.

    The FBI also said that while only one shooter was reported, it was looking into other possibilities.

    Local ABC affiliate KSAT 12 reported the gunman entered the church at around 11:30 local time (17:30 GMT). It also said he had been killed in the aftermath.

    Photos and video from the scene showed the area taped off by local law enforcement.

    A number of helicopters have arrived to transport the wounded, KSAT 12 reporter Max Massey said.

    Texas governor Greg Abbott said: "Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act. Our thanks to law enforcement for their response."

    He said more details would be released by the Texas Department of Public Safety shortly.

    my sarcasm post is gone

    in any event I think the focus on gun control will move to government sponsored or subsidised mental health treatment for regular citizens. maybe in combination wit stricter gun laws re. background checks
    whatever, this sort of thing is starting to become fashion
