Texas shooting death toll includes unborn child

She was nearly 4 months pregnant with the couple's first child together when she was shot and killed inside Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church.

McCallum showed another medic a photo of her niece, Emily.

McCallum's sister-in-law, Crystal Holcombe, was inside the church.

When asked if one of the 26 who died was an unborn child, Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety said yes and nodded in the affirmative.

When the three siblings reached heaven, said McCallum, "the first person they saw was my brother Pete". Holcombe was pregnant at the time, according to police. She was a mother of five. "And he said that was her", a weeping McCallum told the television station.

Crystal's husband, John Holcombe, was injured in the shooting.

The EMT stood vigil outside the blood-spattered church, waiting for investigators to start bringing the bodies of 26 victims out. "I wanted to see them get out of that church".

Holcombe family members from multiple generations were among the deceased.

Holcombe's husband and McCallum's brother died in 2011, and Holcombe remarried.

Bryan and Karla Holcombe's son, Marc Daniel Holcombe, 36, was also killed, along with Marc Daniel Holcombe's 1-year-old daughter, Noah.
