First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Police in Sutherland Springs, Texas confirmed that multiple people were killed by a gunman who opened fire Sunday afternoon at a church. At least 26 people were killed and another 20 were injured by the male suspect, who stormed into First Baptist Church and shot at parishioners.

The shooter, identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, is said to have walked into the church in all black before shooting parishioners at a worship service around 11:15 a.m. local time November 5. After the shooting, Kelley fled the area in his vehicle, and residents pursued him through Guadalupe County. He was found deceased inside the vehicle after he crashed. It’s not yet known if he shot himself, or if he was shot by those chasing him.

A Facebook profile belonging to Kelley shows that he posted a photo of a weapon appearing to be an AR-15 one week ago. His LinkedIn account said he once volunteered as a Bible study instructor, and he served in the U.S. Air Force from 2009-2013.

Neighbors near the church said they heard the suspect reload his weapon “multiple” times and fire as many as 20 shots while a church service was going on. Helicopters were seen flying overhead transporting victims to medical facilities. Families and friends of victims were seen outside the church in tears hearing the news of the shooting.

Authorities cordoned off the surrounding area, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said special agents from its Houston and San Antonio offices are responding to the shooting. The church is located in a rural town about 40 miles east of San Antonio. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton expressed his condolences in a statement and said his office was prepared to help as needed.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was briefed on the situation while in Japan on his trip across Asia.

Christians know satan’s time is growing short. That’s why evil deeds are rapidly expanding around the world. There is a spiritual battle going on right now and this massacre is a prime demonstration. This is an inhuman action that can only take place with demonic possession. Even someone mentally ill would not be so inclined. To murder 26-27 innocent people and injure 20 others, including children, is nothing but a demonic deed.

If you wish to have life eternal beyond what demons can do on this earth, ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and have mercy on your soul. You will be glad you did one day. And so what if I’m wrong. Wouldn’t you rather be safe than sorry? But the good news is that I worship a living and loving God who will be judging all.
