The mass shooter who opened fire inside a Texas church killing at least 26 – including a two-year-old child – has been identified as a 26-year-old US Air Force veteran and Bible study teacher.

Devin Patrick Kelley walked into the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs , dressed in full combat gear, and began shooting, according to local law enforcement sources.



Kelley, 26, of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, was killed after a brief foot chase into Guadalupe County, but it’s still unclear if the gunman shot himself or was taken down by authorities.


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.,Daily Mail reports.

Eventually, Kelley lost control of his car and swerved off the road near county 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. 


San Antonio police raided Kelley’s home on Sunday evening, with K9 and bomb squad units. Kelley, who was married, had recently posted a photo of an AR-15 style gun on his Facebook page with the caption: ‘She’s a bad b***h . Church pastor Frank Pomeroy said that his 14-year-old daughter Annabelle (inset) is among the dead.
