Two people have been placed under arrest after they appeared at the church in Texas where over two dozen worshippers were gunned down and claimed that the said attack was staged.

The pastor of First Baptist Church that is located in Sutherland Springs, southeast of San Antonio, informed the San Antonio Express-News that the two appeared last Monday and said that the shooting was made up by the government of the United States.

The 14-year-old daughter of Pastor Frank Pomeroy died in the shooting that happened on the 5th of November. He says that the two claimed that his daughter never existed.

Authorities of Wilson County identified the pair as 56-year-old Jodie Mann and 54-year-old Robert Ussery. Mann is charged with obstructing a deputy and Ussery with creating a terroristic threat.

Record from the jail did not indicate attorneys for both.

Authorities say that the church attacker died after inflicting a gunshot wound on himself after being shot and chased by residents after he left the church.
