    SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas - One week after a gunman killed more than two dozen people at a Texas church, the sanctuary reopened to the public Sunday as a solemn tribute to the victims.

    According to The Associated Press, the inside of First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs was emptied and painted white. Roses were placed on 26 chairs that bore the name of each victim, including an unborn baby. A cross and Bible opened to the passage planned for last week also were on display as recordings of the victims played, CNN reported.
