Gunman kills 27 during Sunday church service in Texas, shooter dead

The gunman was identified as Devin Patrick Kelley, according to a CBS News law enforcement source.

More than 20 people have been reported dead and more have been reported wounded at a mass shooting inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The person who confronted the suspect at the church and another man were in a vehicle that chased him between 6-8 miles away to Guadalupe County.

UPDATE: The Daily Beast reported that Kelley's Facebook cover photo reportedly featured an assault weapon with the caption, "She's a bad b*tch". Eight of the wounded were transported to Brooke Army Medical Center and and seven others to area hospitals. It is also the deadliest church shooting in modern American history.

"May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas".

Authorities said the man walked into the First Baptist Church, a white, wood-framed building, during the morning service and began shooting at the 50-strong congregation.

Sherri Pomeroy, wife of Pastor Frank Pomeroy, said in a text message that she lost her daughter "and many friends" in the Sunday shooting. Abbott's communications director tweeted that the governor is headed to Sutherland Springs for a briefing and media availability. "I am monitoring the situation from Japan". The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene.

Sutherland Springs is 48 kilometres southeast of San Antonio.
