"She'd do anything for her babies". "She gave her own life trying to protect them".

KWKT reports family members say Ryland Ward was shot 5 times when Devin Kelley, 26, opened fire inside the Sutherland Springs Baptist Church.

Ward died at the scene along with her five-year-old daughter Brooke; her seven-year-old daughter Emily died later at the hospital.

Emily Garza, right, sitting on the right, next to her sister Rihanna, died. Amid the bodies, 5-year-old Ryland Ward laid with four gunshot wounds to his stomach, groin, and arm.

Joann's husband, Chris Ward, skipped services that day after a night shift.

"She gave her life to take care of those babies".

Ryland has "a big heart for his other siblings, friends and family", the page states.

"I didn't get shot because I was hiding, and Mama covered Emily, Ryland and Brooke", Vonda Greek Smith, a friend of the family said, repeating what Rihanna told her. She gave the Herald permission to share the story.

Ward, 30, was the youngest of nine children, the "baby".

Mrs Solis and husband Joaquin Ramirez made a last-minute decision on Sunday to go to church.

"They were really happy babies, really happy kids, always happy, always laughing, always smiling. They were happy all the time", Lookingbill, 36, said. "God's people, your love is encompassing us and we are gaining our strength-We tangibly FEEL it", she wrote on Facebook.

"Ryland survived multiple gunshot wounds, went thru extensive surgeries and will have a very long road back to full recovery", Ms Smith said on Facebook.

The boy is in critical condition and is on a breathing tube, according to the GoFundMe account.

Sunday was the couple's sixth wedding anniversary.

Speaking from Japan, US President Donald Trump said yesterday the gunman was "a very deranged individual, [with] a lot of problems".

Her brother picked Rihanna up and Lookingbill was with the little girl last night. Her brother sat at the church for four hours until officials confirmed Ward had been killed. Her body was not shield enough.

The small town of Sutherland Springs is still coming to terms with the worst mass shooting to hit Texas.
