Moore told The Associated Press. On Sunday, that church was the site of bloodshed and terror unleashed by year-old Devin Patrick Kelley of New Braunfels. Dressed all in black and wearing body armor, Kelley stopped at the town's Valero gas station. Then he drove up to the church and began firing. He fired shots at the church building and shot two people standing outside. Then he went into the church and walked down the center aisle, shooting the worshippers who had gathered for Sunday services.

Then he turned around and kept shooting. He killed at least 26 people and wounded some 20 others. It would be a horrific encounter in any place. But in this place, tiny Sutherland Springs, the event marks a profound loss. The town, 35 miles southeast of San Antonio, has one blinking traffic light. There's a post office, a Family Dollar, a community center.

But in this place, tiny Sutherland Springs, the event marks a profound loss. The town, 35 miles southeast of San Antonio, has one blinking traffic light. There's a post office, a Family Dollar, a community center. And the First Baptist Church , a modest white building. It's a focal point of town life, with a children's choir, a youth group, movie nights, and men's and women's bible study.
Thursdays mean a home-cooked fellowship dinner and distributing food to those in need. Uhlig's cousin, Crystal Holcombe, was eight months pregnant when she was killed on Sunday. Three of her five children were also killed. Mackenzie Hanner, 18, has gone to the church all her life. Sunday evening and Monday morning, journalists from around the world traveled to Sutherland Springs to report on the terrible events. It's a place that doesn't usually get a lot of notice.
