Media outlets are reporting that Chris Ward is the name of the shooter who gunned down more than 25 people at a church in Sutherland Springs in Texas on Sunday morning.
A few Twitter users have come forward to say that it is a case of misidentification.
The name originated from a live CBSN news report in which a woman named Carrie, an employee at a convenience store near the church, stated that neighbors said it was Chris Ward who was the shooter and that he had killed his whole family before his murderous rampage on church members.
UPDATE: The New York Times and NBC News are now reporting that Devin Patrick Kelley is the name of the shooter.
Public records show that Chris Ward married his wife Joann on April 27, 2012.
Chris Ward is originally from La Vernia, Texas. The town has about 1,400 residents.
The population of Sutherland Springs is recorded as being less than 400 people as of the year 2000. The unincorporated community is about twenty miles east of downtown San Antonio.
