In a community the size of Sutherland Springs, a 26-person death toll has reduced the population by 5%.

When gunman Devin Kelley opened fire in the First Baptist church, he killed 23 people inside the church, a further two outside and one later died in hospital.

At least 20 more were left injured.

According to US media, the youngest killed was a one-year-old baby and the eldest was a 77-year-old woman.

The shooter’s grandmother-in-law, Lula White, was one of the victims.

The identities of those killed have not yet been formally released but the names of victims are emerging.
