    Reports: Multiple people shot at Texas church

    Several people were shot Sunday inside a church in South Texas, not far from San Antonio, authorities said.
    The incident occurred at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a small town more than 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. It remains unclear how many were killed, if any.
    Megan Posey, a spokeswoman for Connally Memorial Medical Center, located not far from the church, confirmed that the hospital is still accepting patients from the shooting, though she does not know how many.
    ABC affiliate KSAT is reporting that a man walked into the church, opened fire and was later killed by police, though a dispatcher for the Wilson County sheriff declined to confirm and said information will be released later.
    Photos taken by local media showed several police and emergency vehicles, as well as helicopters, outside the church.
    A video shared on Twitter by a KSAT reporter showed people crying and holding hands as they waited to find out whether their loved ones are safe.
