  • Fears up to 27 killed in Texas church shooting

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted: "Keeping all harmed in Sutherland Springs in our prayers and grateful for our courageous first responders on the scene".

The Wilson County News quoted Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackett on the casualties and that the shooter was now dead.

Kelley reportedly entered the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and began shooting Sunday afternoon.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted: "Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act". He opened fire shortly before noon while people were attending a morning service.

Abbot is en route to Sutherland Springs to speak with law enforcement and the victims. It was not immediately clear how the shooter was taken down.

"She was one attractive, special child", he said. The FBI also was on the scene.

May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas.

One witness, a cashier at a petrol station across the street from the church, said she heard about 20 shots being fired in quick succession while a church service was underway.

President Donald Trump has tweeted from Japan that he is monitoring the situation in Texas following a mass shooting at a church. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.
