Family grieves eight members killed in church shooting

By  | 

(KETK) - The small community of Sutherland Springs, Texas is heartbroken by the tragic mass shooting that took 26 innocent lives on Sunday.

That tragedy hits home especially hard for a family in East Texas after they found out they had lost eight loved ones including one victim who was carrying an unborn child in the act of violence.

"We enjoyed each other when we were together. We didn't just sit around and talk, we played and we had fun and we made fun of each other and we laughed. I'm glad that I have those memories with my cousins," said Holly Elliott who is grieving the loss of her eight family members.

Holly hopes to be able to have one ceremony to commemorate all of the lives her family lost that day.
