Entertainment world reacts to news of Texas mass shooting

The music and entertainment world have reacted after a church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, left at least 26 dead yesterday and many more injured (November 5). 

Those who lost their lives ranged from the young age of only 5 - 72 years old. The “white male” gunman was later found dead in his car some miles away and identified by a U.S. official and one in law enforcement officer as Devin Kelley.

The mass shooting is the deadliest in Texan history, and the second US mass shooting to have occurred recently after the Las Vegas tragedy in which 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured by gunman Stephen Paddock at the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
