Texas church shooting: At least 26 dead, suspect named by police

A gunman has opened fire on worshippers at a small Texas church, killing at least 26 people. A number of children are among the dead, including the 14-year-old daughter of the church pastor.

The police have warned the death toll may rise.

The shooting at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs is the latest in a string of mass killings in the US at the hands of lone gunmen.

Investigators say the gunman was Devin Kelley, a 26-year-old man who lived in a neighboring county. He was found dead by police after a brief chase.
