Community members gathered Sunday evening for a vigil near the Texas church that was the site of a mass shooting as details emerged about the alleged shooter’s military service and discharge.

Twenty-six people died after a gunman opened fire at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX, on Sunday; 23 were killed in the church, two outside and one shortly after being transported to a hospital.

“We can confirm 26 lives lost. We don’t know if that number will rise or not, but we know that’s too many,” said Gov. Greg Abbott during a news conference. The shooting is the worst mass shooting in Texas history.

Ages of those killed range in age from 5 years old to 72, according to Freeman Martin, the Department of Public Safety Regional Director.
