The United States has again witnessed a tragic mass shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
At least 26 people have been confirmed dead after a gunman opened fire at the church in a small town in Wilson County, Texas.
The massive shooting took place at 11.30 local time. The gunman, in the aftermath of the tragedy, has been found dead.
Texas governor Greg Abbott said the gun shooting left 26 people dead and it was the worst such case in Texas’ history.
“As a state, we are dealing with the largest mass shooting in our state’s history,” Abbott said. “This will be a long, suffering mourning for those in pain,” he added.
In the last few months, the U.S. has repeatedly been attacked either by terrorist groups or mentally deranged ‘lone wolves.’
Just a month ago in Las Vegas, The United States witnessed its gravest shooting massacre in the modern history at a country music festival.
At least 58 people were killed and thousands of others wounded after the cynic old man Stephen Paddock, white male, gunned down on a mass of people who were enjoying the music program.
In the last week, at least eight people were killed and 11 others injured after a IS terrorist plowed into the New York crowd in lower Manhattan.
The IS terrorist Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, who orchestrated the attack, was from Uzbekistan. He has been living in the U.S. since 2010.
Meanwhile, the U.S President has tweeted from Japan. He said, “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”
The gunman has later been identified as Devin P Kelley, a 26 years old young white male. The officials said, “The suspected gunman was found in neighboring Guadalupe County dead in his vehicle, but it was not yet clear whether he was killed or died from a self-inflicted wound.”
