    Just saw this and my stomach is turning. These mass shootings are so terrifying. I hate thinking of people being somewhere they feel safe and comfortable and then being faced with this kind of violence. Praying for the best possible outcome, whatever that may be.

    According to information broadcast over police radio a witness to the shooting told law enforcement the shooter was a white male, bald, with a heavy build. He was wearing a sleeveless Tshirt, according to Oak Creek Patch. He was last seen with two handguns.

    WTMJ reports that the gunman may be on the loose. Aerial pictures show multiple bodies in the parking lot.

    I've got the local news on.

    2 males injured, one in icu.

    routine Sunday service, people start to gather as early as 5 a.m., most people arrive around 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. One witness says he saw some people he knew that were inside during the shooting outside now. Some have been evacuated. Swat team has shot one or more people.

    News team is closer to this shooting than they usually are during this type of incident. News can't see the swat team people or fire, etc., but they can see some people who are walking away. People are getting texts from people inside.
