At least 20 people were killed after a gunman opened fire inside a church in a small town in southeast Texas on Sunday.

The gunman was killed after fleeing in a vehicle from the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, about 40 miles (65 km) east of San Antonio, local media report.

Sheriff Joe Tackitt told the Wilson County News that there have been multiple injuries and fatalities, including children. It was not clear how many people have been killed or wounded.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted his condolences to those affected, calling it an “evil act”.

Two Airlife helicopters were seen at the scene.

KSAT has video of several fire and police vehicles at the church and a photo of a helicopter that the station took victims to hospitals.

About 860 people live in the Sutherland Springs area in 2010, according to the U.S. Census.

President Donald Trump said he was monitoring the situation while in Japan on a 12-day Asian trip.

In October, a gunman killed 58 people at a concert in Las Vegas, the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history
