Miami / A total of 26 people died on Sunday in a shooting at a church in Texas (USA), which has already been described as “the worst killing” in the history of this state, and which also left several injured.
In a press conference, the authorities indicated that the ages of the 26 victims range from 5 to 72 years old, one of which is Annabel Pomeroy, the 14-year-old daughter of the church pastor Frank Pomeroy, who confirmed it to ABC News.
Although the authorities have not revealed the name of the attacker, who died after the attack, several US media have identified him as Devin Kelley, a 26-year-old white man who died after a brief persecution.
The police investigates if the attacker belonged to a criminal organization and only confirmed that he was dressed completely in black and was wearing a bulletproof vest.
The authorities did not specify if the perpetrator was killed by a shot by the agents or if he took his own life.
According to the scant information that the authorities have released so far, the events began after 11 am on Sunday morning (local time), when the attacker parked at a gas station near the temple where a Sunday mass was celebrated and fired to the assistants with a semi-automatic rifle.
In the vehicle in which it took place and in which it later tried to escape several firearms were found.
The event deserved that the president of the United States, Donald Trump, followed the situation so much from Japan, where he is on tour.
