DEVELOPING: Police Searching For EXPLOSIVE DEVICES at Home of Sutherland Springs Church Gunman
New reports reveal San Antonio police are currently searching the home of the Sutherland Springs church shooter for explosive devices. The identity of the shooter is still unknown.
Police are checking for explosive devices at the home of a man suspected of shooting and killing at least 27 people and wounding more than 20 in a Sutherland Springs church on Sunday.
The San Antonio Police Department is sending a K9 unit to the scene, an official told mySA.com, though it’s unclear where the home is.
The shooter, now deceased, opened fire on a group of people at First Baptist
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, at least 27 people are dead after a gunman opened fire inside the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas.
Daily Mail UK reports:
The shooting happened at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, where around 50 people usually attend service, according to local reports.
Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr told CNN that at least 27 people have been killed in the shooting, but the death toll is expected to climb.
‘My heart is broken,’ Gamez said. ‘We never think where it can happen, and it does happen. It doesn’t matter where you’re at. In a small community, real quiet and everything, and look at this, what can happen.’
At least 24 others were injured in the horrific shooting. Witnesses said a man ‘in full gear’ walked inside the church and opened fire just before 11.30am.
First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy told ABC that his 14-year-old daughter is among the dead. She ‘was one very beautiful, special child,’ the pastor said. His wife, Sherri Pomeroy, said her husband was out of town at the time of the shooting.
As Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the gunman is allegedly not from the area:
Texas Congressman Vicente Gonzalez said on MSNBC he had received reports that “24 people are now deceased from this incident and 20 people are injured. We won’t have final numbers until probably a few more hours.”
Gonzalez added that “apparently the shooter was not from the area, he was from outside of that area.”
