Texas Church Massacre: 26 dead, 20 injured, by Hannah Parry.
The mass shooter who opened fire during Mass inside a Texas church killing at least 27 … has been identified as a 26-year-old former Bible study teacher who was dishonorably discharged from the US Air Force.
Devin Patrick Kelley 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 was tackled by a heroic local man who shot back at the mass shooter as he left the church.
Kelley, 26, of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, fled in his SUV but the unnamed neighbor, and another local man, had given chase.
Eventually, Kelley lost control of his car and swerved off the road near state lines on the 539 county road, in Guadalupe County, and was reportedly shot dead by the neighbor.
He was found deceased by the cops who also discovered multiple weapons and possible explosives in his vehicle.
‘We are not sure if it was self inflicted or if he was shot by a local resident,’ said Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin. …
It is believed to have been the worst shooting at a place of worship in American history.
