Pastor Frank Pomeroy of First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX confirmed on Sunday afternoon that his 14-year-old daughter was among the more than 25 people killed in Sunday morning’s shooting rampage.
WSB-TV reported that Pomeroy called his daughter “a beautiful, special child.”
At least 25 people are dead and as many injured after a gunman entered First Baptist Church on Sunday morning and opened fire with what is believed to be a semi-automatic weapon.
Gunfire erupted at around 11:15 a.m. on Sunday and only lasted for about 15 seconds, witnesses said.
The gunman was killed after a chase by police, who have so far not released the killer’s name.
