Pomeroy’s wife, Sherri, told NBC News that her husband was out of town during the shooting, but their daughter was inside the church attending the morning service.
The shooter is said to have walked into the church in “full gear” before shooting parishioners and is “down,” authorities confirmed, adding there’s no active threat

One woman wrote on Facebook, “Please pray for Sutherland Springs a gunman in full gear walked into the Baptist church and there are casualties……he took off crash his vehicle not far from my daughter’s house and was on foot i believe the police got him. For those of you calling about my daughter and family there are all ok. Pray for these families this is absolutely heartbreaking.”
“Oh my God if you live in Sutherland Springs or Wilson County please go in side and stay safe. My family just called me freaking out because across the street from their house a guy with an assault rifle started shooting in our town church and even shot my brothers house. If ur from my hometown go inside, lock ur doors and so be safe and I love you all,” wrote one woman on Facebook.
Our government let this threat get worse. Trump tried to get more vetting, but there were people fighting him all the way.

That's what Americans need to stop all these mass shootings. All these mass shotings in the US obviously only occur because you guys simply don't have enough guns....

Reading on bbc news it says the congregation is usually about 50 people, 27 are dead and 20 -25 are injured. If this is correct it sounds like every single person got shot.
That's as still being reported on the BBC.
It used to be a church was a place of sanctury, Condolences to all those affected.
Unfortunately those days ended long ago. 139 shootings in churches between 1980 and 2005.

Yep, from what I saw posted on his page and postings by him, he seemed like a pretty twisted young man.
Noticed the AR displayed prominently.
