Shootings with multiple victims have became way too common, both locally and nationally.
Sunday's mass shooting at a Baptist church east of San Antonio is the most recent, coming weeks after the attack in Las Vegas that is the worst in U.S. history. Gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest country music concert from the 32nd floor of a casino hotel, killing at least 58 people and wounding more than 500. Paddock killed himself in his hotel room.
The most recent mass shooting in North Texas came Sept. 10, when Spencer James Hight, 32, invaded a Dallas Cowboys watch party at the home of his estranged wife and opened fire, fatally shooting eight people and injuring another.
Hight was shot and killed by a responding police officer.
