A shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs in Texas has left 27 people dead and an estimated 30 injured this Sunday afternoon. While the information surrounding the situation is still spares, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have both issued statements following the incident from their trip abroad in Japan.
Both of the statements issued refer to the power of GOD – a very appropriate reference considering where this mass shooting took place.
“Mary God be with the people of Southerland Springs, Texas,” Trump wrote.
He went on to assure the American people that the FBI are working hard on the situation.
May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.

Pence took the situation one step further calling the shooter ‘evil,’ and sending prayers from both himself and his wife.
