A gunman with an assault rifle opened fire at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, during Sunday service killing at least 26 people in one of the worst shooting massacres in the history of the state.  

The suspect, identified as 26-year-old, sacked Air Force official, Devin Patrick Kelley, was later found dead in his vehicle. However, it remains unclear if he succumbed to self-inflicted wounds or was shot by someone else, writes the BBC.

U.S. President Donald Trump, on a two-day visit to Japan, blamed the mental health of the perpetrator and not the gun ownership policies for the massacre, notes The Guardian.
