At least 26 people have been killed and many more injured in a shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, authorities said. Here is the latest on the attack, as well as a summary and images from the scene.
Nov. 7, 2017: Kelley killed his grandmother-in-law during the attack, multiple friends of the woman told CNN. The gunman was obsessed with a domestic dispute, and had sent threatening text messages to his mother-in-law. He texted her as recently as Sunday morning, not long before he carried out the mass shooting, authorities said.
The mass shooting left about 20 others wounded at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, about 30 miles east of San Antonio.
The shooter was identified as Devin Patrick Kelley, a former airman who had assaulted his wife and stepson on multiple occasions, according to the US Air Force.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called the slaughter "the largest mass shooting" in the state's history and ordered flags to fly at half-staff across the state.
The 14-year-old daughter of church pastor Frank Pomeroy was one of the victims killed, his wife, Sherry Pomeroy, told CNN. Neither she nor her husband were at the church when the shooting occurred, she said.
A vigil was held for the victims Nov. 5, 2017, the day of the shooting.
