Das Motiv des Schützen wurzelt nach Angaben der örtlichen Behörden in "Familienstreitigkeiten".

Dort hatte sich der weiße Neonazi und Ku-Klux-Klan-Anhänger Dylann Roof im Juni 2015 in die Bibelstunde der vorwiegend von Afro-Amerikanern besuchten Emanuel-African-Methodist-Episcopal-Kirche geschlichen und acht Gemeindemitglieder sowie den Pastor hingerichtet.

Knapp drei Tage nach dem Massaker in der Kirche in Sutherland Springs, Texas, sorgen Berichte über Versäumnisse vor der Tat und mögliche frühe Warnzeichen für Wirbel.

Sutherland Springs. Auffällig ist, dass das Verbrechen an einem düsteren Jahrestag stattfand: Vor genau acht Jahren wurden in Fort Hood 13 Menschen erschossen und 42 verletzt. Er sei 2014 entlassen worden, teilte eine Sprecherin der US-Luftwaffe mit. Nach Darstellung Abbotts handelte es sich um die schlimmste Tat eines einzelnen Schützen in der Geschichte des Bundesstaates. Kelley hatte selbst Angehörige, die regelmäßig in die Kirche gingen.

In einer Kirche im US-Staat Texas sind zahlreiche Menschen durch Schüsse verletzt worden.

Nach Behördenangaben wurde der ganz in Schwarz gekleidete junge Mann gegen 11.20 Uhr zunächst an einer Tankstelle der Ortschaft gesehen. Es seien mindestens 20 Schüsse in rascher Reihenfolge gefallen. Andere schilderten, der Schütze habe mehrere Male nachgeladen. "Es dauerte etwa 15 Sekunden". "Wir sind eine kleine, idyllische Gemeinde abseits der großen Städte mit all ihrer Gewalt", sagte ein Lokalpolitiker dem Sender MSNBC, "hier kennt jeder jeden und das seit Generationen". Was am Sonntag geschehen sei, treffe damit alle Einwohner. Der Täter hatte während eines Gottesdienstes in einer Baptistenkirche im Ort Sutherland Springs das Feuer auf die Besucher eröffnet. Rettungshubschrauber flogen Opfer in Krankenhäuser.
