    Several people were reportedly shot and killed on Sunday after a “mass shooting” at a Texas church, police said.

    The shooting was reported at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, which is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. A witness told KSAT that a man walked into the church about 11:30 a.m. Sunday and opened fire at the crowd of people. The church holds morning worship services at 11 a.m., according to its website.

    Constable Thomas Silvas from Precinct 1 in Wilson County confirmed to Fox News there was a "mass shooting" situation and that officials were working on removing the bodies from the church, but did not specify the number of people who were dead or wounded.

    No, not for a long time. They're often targets, and in a recent church shooting one of the parishioners was armed.
