Police discovered hundreds of shell casings along with 15 magazines at the scene of the Texas church shooting, an official said Monday.

Each of the fifteen magazines had thirty rounds, The Associated Press reported Monday. The items were uncovered as police investigated the scene of the shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire at the congregation Sunday, killing 26 and wounding others. The victims spanned the ages of 18-months to 77 years old. Authorities are still unsure of a motive, but believe that it stemmed from a domestic dispute involving the shooter’s mother-in-law.

“This was not racially motivated, it wasn’t over religious beliefs,” Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety said Monday. “There was a domestic situation going on within the family and the in-laws.”
