The gunman behind the Texas church massacre killed his grandmother-in-law during the attack, multiple friends of the woman told CNN.

Devin Patrick Kelley had domestic problems and texted his mother-in-law as recently as Sunday morning, not long before he carried out the largest mass shooting in Texas history, authorities said.

We know that he expressed anger towards his mother-in-law, who attends this church," said Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety. He said Kelley had a history of sending her threatening texts.

But his mother-in-law was not inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs when Kelley sprayed the congregation with gunfire and killed 26 people. The youngest killed was a 17-month-old girl, her family told CNN. The oldest was 77 years old, Martin said.

The gunman's grandmother-in-law, Lula White, was the grandmother of Kelley's wife and often volunteered at the church, according to friends and her Facebook profile.
 
The friends asked not to be named as the family has decided to not speak to the media about White's death at this time, though a few have posted on social media
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called the massacre "the largest mass shooting" in the state's history.

      Note that this happened in a church, all the extra virgin olive oil, pews, bibles, believers and prayers in the world could save these poor people. All comforted by their delusions until reality illustrated how utterly powerless their belief truly is...as reality tends to do often...

        Regardless if this took place in a church or on the streets, there is nothing wrong with persons holding onto a belief, especially if its to God Almighty. Call me biased if you'd like but, I'd rather live in this crazy world with the faith and hope of a coming savior and the chance to reign with Him, than to live as if when I die, that's it. I would think its safer to believe that living my life doing good and being the best human being I can be, regardless of the situations, and having hope in a God who promises me a new and better life when He comes, is better than thinking that all the chaos throughout the years of this world, which is getting gradually worst as we all can see, is just life, and that I have to live it until I die... and that's it. What if there wasn't a God... fine.. then we die and that's it.. but what if there is? Which is the safest option?

        The congregation was not delusional. The bible tells us all will die. No believer believes that they will never die or can't be harmed because they are in a church building. Just like you they did not know when would be their end.
