A moment later, the journal saw displaced children cry after the loss of their parents as a stampede of the congregation ran away from the scene, seeking safety.

Around 4 p.m., different agencies of law enforcement and fire rescue vehicles were seen flooding in the area.

They are now erased from the entire area and have ordered everyone, including suppliers, to get out.

According to Keil, at least two women looked like they were shot in the leg. Moments later, a man was seen on the floor in handcuffs.

It is unknown whether the suspect or the suspects are held at this time.
