A gunman entered a small church in southeast Texas and opened fire, killing at least 20 worshippers and wounding many others in the latest in a series of mass shootings that have plagued the United States, according to authorities and media reports. The church's pastor, Frank Pomeroy, said his 14-year-old daughter, Annabelle, is among the dead. The gunman was killed several kilometers from the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, about 65 kilometers east of San Antonio, Guadalupe County Sheriff's Sergeant Robert Murphy said.

Neither the suspect's identity nor any possible motive were disclosed by authorities.

The First Baptist Church is a fixture in Sutherland Springs, an area home to fewer than 900 residents, according the 2010 Census.

No. 7 Penn State falls to No
Penn State's College Football Playoff hopes likely went down with the loss, having lost their last two by a combined four points. When it restarted, Michigan State faced third-and-4 from Penn State 37-yard line with 7:58 to play in the first half.

At least 26 people were killed, Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed at a press conference.

Megan Posey, a spokeswoman for Connally Memorial Medical Centre, which is in Floresville and about 10 miles from the church, said "multiple" victims were being treated for gunshot wounds. "The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene", he said on Twitter.

The gunman fled the scene and police chased him into the next county where he was shot and killed, although it's not certain if police shot him or if he turned a gun on himself, Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr., told CNN.

Carrie Matula, who works at a nearby gas station near, told MSNBC she heard what sounded like semiautomatic gunfire coming from the modest, white clapboard church with a red door.

The U.S. official says Kelly lived in a suburb of San Antonio and that he doesn't appear to be linked to organized terrorist groups. "It lasted about 15 seconds", she said. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted "keeping all harmed in Sutherland Springs in our prayers".
