Texas Church Shooting, Horrible Act Of Evil – Trump
President Donald Trump has sent his condolences to victims of Sunday’s mass shooting in a small South Texas community church.
He tweeted from Tokyo on Monday as he began the first leg of his Asia visit.
He also released a statement calling the shooting a “horrible act of evil” and said he would “continue to follow developments closely” during his 12-day tour.
At least 26 people were killed and about 20 others injured after a gunman opened fire on the church.
The violence comes just one month after the nation was rocked by the Las Vegas massacre, which left 59 dead and 527 injured after a shooter opened fire on a country music festival.
The latest mass shooting targeted the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a community of about 400 people located about 30 miles from San Antonio.
The suspected shooter, identified as former airman Devin Kelley, died after a car chase. It remains unclear how he died or what his motive was.
Texas Governor, Greg Abbott has described this as the deadliest mass shooting in the state’s recent history.
