John Holcombe has arranged a public funeral for his pregnant wife and three of her children, his parents, a brother and a toddler niece, who were killed in the shooting.

SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, TEXAS—One of the survivors of a mass shooting at a small Texas church will hold a funeral Wednesday for his pregnant wife and three of her children, his parents, a brother and a toddler niece.

John Holcombe has arranged a public funeral for his family at an event centre in Floresville, Texas, about 19 kilometres from the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, where the shooting occurred. A procession of hearses will travel from the funeral home to the centre.

Devin Patrick Kelley shot and killed 25 people at the church Nov. 5. Authorities have put the official toll at 26, because Holcombe’s wife, Crystal Holcombe, was pregnant.
