Officials have reportedly identified the shooter who killed more than 20 people in a Texas church Sunday morning.
Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, has been named as the alleged shooter by CBS News. Kelley is said to be a white male.
Shooting began around 11:30 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, about 40 miles southeast of San Antonio.
Only one victim has been identified so far: Annabelle Renee Pomeroy, 14, daughter of church pastor Frank Pomeroy.
A law enforcement official confirmed that the gunman is deceased. He was shot after a car chase with police, but it’s unclear if he shot himself or if he was shot by police, CBS News’ senior investigative producer Pat Milton reports.
“We still don’t know much about what happened, other than this guy came in around 11:15 a.m. and started shooting everybody in the church,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said on CBSN.
