Texas church shooting leaves 26 dead, including 8 members of one family.

While the people in the United States are still not recovered from the wounds of the mass shooting that killed 65, last week in Las Vegas; a shocking incident happened on Sunday. Yet another incident of open firing took place in America, killing 26 with almost two-dozen people severely injured in The First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, Texas.

According to the resources in Texas governor, Greg Abbott called the attack as the deadliest mass shooting which took place ever in the history of his state. This is no surprise because every other shooting incident in America is on a larger scale than ever before.

The police, unfortunately, could not get hold of the suspect but he was seen by a few at the local gas station around 11:20 a.m. as dressed in all-black, tactical gear and a ballistic vest. He was later identified by the federal law enforcement as a white-young male, namely, Devin Patrick Kelley, 26-year-old. He exited his vehicle parking it nearby the Church, crossed the street, took out his suspected AR-15 weapon and began firing at the church, then entered the church and continued firing again. A neighborhood resident tried to get hold of the suspect as he walked out of the church, but sadly, he could only grab his gun as Devin got lucky to flee from the crime scene.

This shocking incident couldn’t have been much weirder before the investigators found that the suspect was dead in his own vehicle parked across the street. It is still not sure whether he inflicted the shot upon himself or was he shot dead by another person from the neighborhood because his gun was grabbed by the man outside the church.

Another who witnessed the ghastly mass shooting told how painful it was to see the shooting happened in front of his eyes with absolutely no possible help from him or anyone around. He also said that if it weren’t for the man who gathered up the courage to tame the suspect, he wouldn’t have stopped shooting, already. He told the police investigators that the man who lives nearby the church is very compassionate for other and could go to any extent for the welfare of others. What he told next was a great deal of information, because he said that the kind man took cover behind a vehicle and shot the suspect while he was trying to run-away from the shooting scene.

As the news spread about the mass shooting, an Air Force spokesperson in his statement told that Kelley is a former the United States Air Force member. He served the Air Force from2010 to 2014 before getting court-martialed in 2012 for charges of assault on his spouse and the child they parented together.

With the suspect dead, it is hard to know the reason for his breakdown that led to the deadly mass shooting. Provided the law enforcement agents are yet to uncover the life history and mental health issues, if any, for the suspect we can’t help but condemn the crime that happened. It is only safe to say that it is high time, all ready to embrace a gun-control law in America. With mass shooting scenes becoming a day-to-day activity in America, it needs thorough and sincere actions by the government. Speaking of which, The US president, who is on his first Asian trip as the president addressed this issue as an ‘act of evil’ while in Tokyo. He also mentioned this ghastly and totally irresponsible incidence as, ‘ mental health problem not a gun situation’ which has us stirred up. Anyone but the US president should take the increasing mass shooting incidents and be obliged to address a new law rather than just ‘monitoring’ the situation.
