The Vice President and Second Lady are also scheduled to visit Indianapolis on Thursday.

In the wake of the deadly church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Vice President Mike Pence is in Texas today to join a community in mourning.

Pence will arrive in Indy at 4:15 p.m. for the 5:15 roundtable.

He will meet privately with the victims' families of the mass church shooting and make hospital visits with survivors of the shooting. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, and Will Hurd, R-Texas.


Neighbors at the Valero across the street from the church, who were nearby when the shooting happened, said they hope Pence spreads the word that Sutherland Springs is a loving community despite what happened.

Texas gunman Devin Kelley was not eligible to purchase the assault rifle he used to kill 26 people because he had been court-martialed by the Air Force in 2012, but still passed federal background checks to buy it.

The Las Vegas attack, the worst mass shooting in US history, occurred October 1.

From there, the Pences will head to Floresville High School, where they will meet with the families of the victims and participate in a prayer vigil.
