Residents of small Texas town reluctantly 'Why here'


(MENAFN)Sutherland Springs became the focus of global attention on Sunday when it suffered the worst mass shooting in modern Texas history.

The community is set amid farmlands and rolling hills about 65km east of San Antonio, and it is basically too small it almost does not have its own police force and much of its social activity depends on its two churches.

The city includes a Baptist Church, where a gunman took his rifle during a Sunday service and killed at least 26 parishioners.

"We wouldn't believe that something like this would happen here." said Paul Buford, pastor of River Oaks Church, the other house of worship in Sutherland Springs.
