A gunman entered a church in a small town in southeast Texas on Sunday and began firing, resulting in "multiple" fatalities and injuries, local media reported, citing the county sheriff. Children are among the wounded.

Police were at the scene of the shooting in Sutherland Springs, about 40 miles (65 km) east of San Antonio, the Wilson County Texas Sheriff's Office told Reuters without providing further information about the shooting.

Sheriff Joe Tackitt told the Wilson County News that there have been multiple injuries and fatalities at the First Baptist Church. It was not immediately clear how many people were killed or wounded.
