Texas Shooting Witness: We Have to Overcome Evil With Good
As details are still emerging about a deadly shooting at a Texas church Sunday morning, one witness immediately had a message of peace.
"We just did what we do. We prayed," an older male witness told Fox News on Sunday.
Devin Kelley, 26, walked into First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas and opened fire around 11:30 am local time, killing at least 25 and injuring over a dozen more. The shooter was gunned down by police. FBI and local authorities are investigating the attack.
"The Bible tells us that we overcome evil with good, and evil doesn't overcome evil," he encouraged.
A deputy and the witness' wife, a nurse at the local hospital "went into action," he said.
"Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said on Twitter. "Our thanks to law enforcement for their response."
President Trump offered his support from Japan, saying he is monitoring 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.
