On November 5, 2017, the country witnessed another mass shooting — this time inside a small church. Twenty-six people were killed after a gunman entered First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas and opened fire on the congregation.
The incident is one of several shootings in America that have involved multiple victims — just more than a month ago, a man in Las Vegas took the lives of nearly 60 people who were attending a music festival there. Hundreds more were injured.
