At least 26 were killed and 20 more injured after a shooting Sunday at a church in Texas, ABC News reports.

The alleged shooter is dead, after a brief chase north into the next county. It’s unclear if the shooter was killed by police.

There is no word yet on a motive.

The shooting reportedly happened at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, which is about 40 miles east of San Antonio.
