A County Commissioner in Texas says he’s been told that more than 20 people were killed and more than 20 were wounded in a church attack, though he says those figures haven’t been confirmed.
A sheriff says that a man walked into the church and started firing. Authorities say the attacker was later killed.
A man opened fire inside of a church in a small South Texas community on Sunday, killing multiple people and wounding others before being “taken down,” authorities said.
It was not immediately clear if the church was holding services at the time of the shooting.
A sheriff’s department dispatcher said everyone was at the scene and unavailable to comment.
KSAT showed video of several fire and police vehicles at the church and a photo of a helicopter arriving to transport victims to hospitals.
Sutherland Springs is 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of San Antonio.
