Texas church shooting: Trump says guns are not to blame

Washington Correspondent

A small town in Texas is the latest community to be shaken by the horror of a mass shooting in America. 26 people were killed, the youngest 18 months old, the oldest, aged 77.

20 others were injured on Sunday – ten of them critically – after a gunman opened fire in the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs. The attacker – named as Devin Kelley – had served in the US Airforce and was court martialled in 2012 for assaulting his wife and child.
