Sutherland Springs

Sheriff's Summit To Offer Advice On Church Security

Nov 16, 2017

From Texas Standard:

In the aftermath of the Sutherland Springs church shootings, just how far can – or should – other churches go to protect themselves from something similar?

This month’s mass shooting at a Texas church has raised questions of whether the military does enough to help former service members with bad conduct discharges. They're not eligible for veterans' mental health care.

Ten of the two dozen victims in the Sutherland Springs Church shooting in Texas were remembered at a service Wednesday.

The Holcombe name is very recognizable in Wilson County. Bryan Holcombe, 60, was filling as pastor at First Baptist the day of the shooting. He and his wife Karla were killed that Sunday along with others members of their family.
