    At least 16 people have been shot inside a Texas church after a gunman opened fire during the Sunday morning service.

    The shooting happened at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, where around 50 people usually attend service, according to local reports.

    Authorities said a man walked into the church and opened fire just before 10.30am.

    A witness at the scene said a two-year-old was also shot in the attack. Neighbors in the area said they may have heard the shooter reload multiple times.

    It's unclear if anyone has is deceased.

    SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas - A man who opened fire in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, is dead, police say.

    A witness reported seeing a man walk into First Baptist Church and began shooting around 11:30 a.m.

    Police said there are "multiple victims" at the church, but have not said how many.

    The church is located in the 500 block of 4th Street in the small, south Texas town about 40 miles east of San Antonio.

    This is a developing story. Stay with KSAT 12 and KSAT.com for more information as it becomes available.

    As usual, all that will matter is the complexion of the shooter, and if those magic two words were uttered.

    Usually seems if they post a number like 15 dead this early it means more. Hopefully it's the reverse.

    Really makes the small things that we normally argue/bitch about seem so trivial.

    It’s a constant of moving on talking shit about shit that really doesn’t matter and being brought back to earth because of something that’s terrible.

    I agree. But I think things like arguing over small things like sports helps us escape the reality that this world is a fucked up place
