Transcript for Reflecting on covering the Texas church shooting
back to Matt Gutman in sut a Sutherland springs. I've been on the ground here for about 30 hours. A couple of things really distinguish this attack from so many of the other horrors that we've covered over the past couple of months. The first is how tiny this place is. The equivalent of 10% of the entire town's population was either killed or wounded in that church and there's one other thing. Families were gunned down en masse. In one case there were eight members of a single family. Several other families lost multiple family members, and that is so crushing for this community. We talked to one pastor tonight. The horror of the tragedy. People don't know how to begin and grieve here. It's a staggering loss. For more go online at Right now on "Page six TV."
