A Texas official has just announced that gunman Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, who was responsible for the shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs which claimed the lives of 26 people did not have a licence to carry a gun. 

Kelley, a court-martialled former United States Air Force airman, armed with a powerful assault rifle sprayed bullets on worshippers at a Sunday service at a rural church in Texas, killing at least 26 people and injuring 20 others in the latest gun-related massacre to shock the country.

Reacting to the incident, US President Donald Trump, who is in Japan condemned the shooting as an act of evil and said Americans would pull together.

And through the tears and through the sadness, we stand strong, oh so strong, he said but dismissed the need for guns control.

Trump said the gunman had a mental health problem and that this is not a guns situation.

Preliminary reports show a very deranged individual whos been having a problem for a very long time, he said, adding that We have a lot of mental health problems in our country.
