Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Twenty-six people ranging in age from 18 months to 77 years old were killed and 20 more were injured during a mass shooting at a church in Texas on Sunday.
Freeman Martin, regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety said 23 people died inside the church, two outside of the church and one at the hospital. Of the 20 injured victims, six were in stable condition, four in serious condition and 10 in critical condition.
Authorities have not released the names of all those who were killed, pending the notification of the next of kin.
At least 10 of those who died in the shooting were children including the pastor's daughter as well as an unborn child.
Annabelle Renee Pomeroy, 14, was one of the first of the dead identified. Her father, the pastor of the church, Frank Pomeroy, and her mother, Sherri Pomeroy, were out of town at the time of the shooting. Her father said the teen "was one very beautiful, special child."
Eight members of the Holcolmbe family, spanning three generations, were also killed during the attack.
Bryan Holcombe, an associate pastor for the church, who was filling in for Pomeroy on Sunday, was killed in the shooting along with Karla Holcombe, his wife of four decades.
