Texas Church Shooter, 26, Who Killed at Least 26 People Identified as Devin Patrick Kelley

61

Devin Patrick Kelley a married father, walked into the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, dressed in black, tactical gear with a ballistics belt and an assault rifle, and began shooting, according to local law enforcement sources. The attack only stopped when Kelley, 26, of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, was confronted by a heroic local man who shot at the mass shooter as he left the church. Kelley was reportedly killed by that same brave neighbor following a high-speed car chase. Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr told CNN that at least 26 people were killed in the shooting, including Annabelle Pomeroy, whose father – First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy – had been out of town during the attack, as well as stand-in preacher Bryan Holcolmbe and his Sunday school teacher Karla. Kelley was a US Air Force veteran and former Bible studies teacher but his Facebook page, which has been deleted by the FBI, reveals he had a worrying fascination with weaponry. He’d recently shared a photo of an AR-15 style gun on Facebook with the caption: ‘She’s a bad b***h’.
