11 Church Shooting Victims Remain Hospitalized
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas (AP) — Eleven people remain hospitalized following the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs that left more than two dozen worshippers dead.
A spokeswoman at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio said seven shooting victims remained at the hospital Wednesday, ranging from fair to critical condition.
Officials with University Health System in San Antonio still had four patients Wednesday, listed with conditions ranging from good to critical.
A law enforcement official who has seen video from inside the Texas church says bullets splintered the walls and pews, several of which were overturned.
The church regularly video-recorded its services, and the official says the footage investigators have seen shows several minutes of the attack as there was “no one to turn it off.” The official says it shows the gunman shooting some victims in the head.
The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly on an ongoing investigation.
The official was also among those who went in the church after the shooting and said several of the pews were overturned, although it was unclear if that was from the attack or rescue efforts once paramedics arrived. Some of the holes in the wall were large enough to see sunlight from the inside.
