Pence tells Texas shooting victims 'we will never leave your side'

Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Texas Wednesday to speak with law enforcement officials and visit those impacted by Sunday’s mass shooting at a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs.

Speaking at a prayer gathering at the First Baptist Church, Pence told the community that Americans continue to pray for them in the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting at a church in modern U.S. history.

“Three days ago, evil descended on this small town, this small church,” Pence said, noting he had just visited with recovering victims at the Brooke Army Medical Center. He added that he, along with second lady Karen Pence, “were deeply moved by their faith, their resilience.”

Pence’s visit comes days after former Air Force Airman Devin Kelley opened fire on the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, killing 26 people and wounding 20.
