Pregnant mom, three of her kids among dead in Texas church massacre

NEW YORK POST – AMANDA WOODS

A 1-year-old girl and an 8-months-pregnant mom of five were among eight members of the same family slaughtered in Sunday’s church massacre in Texas, according to reports.

Bryan Holcombe, an associate pastor of the the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs was approaching the pulpit when gunman Devin Kelley opened fire — killing the preacher, his wife Karla, their son Danny, and Danny’s 17-month-old daughter, Noah, CNN reports.

Bryan and Karla’s other son, John, survived, but John’s pregnant wife, Crystal, did not — nor did her unborn child or three of her five kids: Emily, Megan and Greg, according to the Washington Post.

Just a day before the shooting, Crystal posted pictures of Megan and Emily, who finished first and third in their respective categories at a 4H bakeoff.
