Twenty-six people were killed during the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said at a news conference Sunday evening. 'We don't know if that number will rise or not, but we know is that's too many and this will be a long, suffering mourning for those in pain,' he said. Dressed all in black and wearing tactical gear and a ballistic vest, Kelly first began firing outside the church at around 11:20 a.m. local time (12:20 p.m. ET) before he continued his shooting spree inside, said Freeman Martin, a regional director with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
