There are multiple reports of what appeared to have been an active shooter situation at a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
What kind of savage would choose to shoot at a Church where innocent men, women, and children are worshipping on a Sunday in the House of the Lord is beyond perplexing and extremely infuriating.
The shooting took place at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs located on 216 4th Street; which is approximately 40 miles to the east of San Antonio.
Witnesses say that a male suspect entered the church and opened fire on the victims.

Witnesses say there are multiple victims at the site of the Church where dozens of police cars and emergency medical responders are at the scene trying to make sense of the barbaric crimes against Children of God in his House of Prayer.

Reports on Twitter and Facebook have also indicated that as many as 15 people were shot at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, but authorities had not confirmed that number.
An MSNBC producer wrote, “Source in TX tells me as many as 10-15 dead in church shooting in Sutherland Springs, near San Antonio; suspect is down.”
On social media, people said the casualty count could be even higher but again there is no official confirmation on any of these numbers as of this time.
Sheriff Joe Tackett has also confirmed that there were both multiple fatalities and that shooter has been taken down by police.
This is a breaking story, we will update with facts as they come in.
