Authorities review video of small-town Texas church attack

The law enforcement official was among those who went inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs after the attack and said several of the pews were overturned, although it was unclear if that was from the attack or from rescue efforts. Bullets had splintered the walls and pews, leaving shards of wood all over the floors. Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Texas on Wednesday, visiting wounded victims at a San Antonio hospital and later meeting families of the dead in Floresville, not far from Sutherland Springs. Pence went from table to table at a high school library attempting to console devastated family members. “The whole country is praying over you,” he told one man who lost his sister-in-law. He stopped to talk with John Holcombe, whose family was decimated by the shooting. Holcombe, who suffered shrapnel wounds, lost his wife Crystal — who was pregnant with their first child — three of her children, his parents, a brother and a toddler niece. Pence hugged 7-year-old Evelyn Holcombe, who managed to survive by running out of the church during the attack. Earlier Wednesday, Pence said that President Donald Trump had ordered federal agencies to provide extensive help to the investigation including 100 on-site FBI agents. The agent in charge of the FBI’s San Antonio division said Tuesday agents had not been able to retrieve data from Devin Patrick Kelley’s cellphone. In a statement Wednesday evening, Apple said it’s offered the FBI technical advice after learning the bureau was trying to access the phone. The company said the FBI had not requested its assistance. Depending on the model of iPhone and what security features it had, FBI agents might have had a short window to use alternative methods to access its data. Read More http://ift.tt/2AurNQv
