Texas church is scene of shooting

More Than 20 People Killed, Wounded After Gunman Opens Fire at Church in Texas

Sunday's incident comes just five weeks after the deadliest mass shooting in recent USA history shook Las Vegas, with 58 people killed.

At least six people were transported to a hospital in San Antonio.

A police commissioner at the scene confirmed that at least 27 people had died. He didn't know specifics about how the other was doing.

Local media report a two-year-old is among the shooting victims.

The wife of the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs says the couple's 14-year-old daughter was among those killed in a mass shooting at the church.

Pomeroy told ABC News his daughter was "one very handsome, special child".

He was not at the church at the time of the massacre.

Police said the gunman was dead and there was no longer an active shooter at large. It is not known whether police shot the gunman or if he killed himself.

TV news anchors discussed the fact that the church, located about 40 minutes southeast of San Antonio, posts its services to YouTube, and thus there may be a recording of the shooting that investigators will be able to study.

"I was not at the church when the shooting took place".

KSAT reports that two Airlife helicopters are also at the scene.

"Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act", Gov. Greg Abbott said on Twitter. Law enforcement sources confirm to TMZ there are multiple deaths. A woman who said she works at a gas station across the street from the church told ABC News she heard rapid gunfire around 11:15 a.m. Congregants fled the church and ran to the station cowering for cover, she said.

"This is something that happens in a big city", she said.
