Small Texas Town Mourns Victims of Church Shooting

Texans remember the 26 victims killed at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, the deadliest mass shooting in the state's history.

Police move flowers placed at a barricade near the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on on Nov. 6, 2017.

A man dressed in black tactical-style gear and armed with an assault rifle opened fire inside the church, killing 26 people and wounding about 20 in what the governor called the deadliest mass shooting in the state's history. The dead ranged in age from 5 to 72 years old.
