Thoughts and prayers for the victims and families. As well as for the armed neighbors that responded before the police arrived.

“When Mr. Kelley emerged from the church, an armed neighbor exchanged gunfire with him, hitting Mr. Kelley, who fled in his vehicle. Neighbors apparently followed him, chasing him into the next county, Guadalupe County, where Mr. Kelley crashed his car. Mr. Kelley was found dead in his vehicle.”

Thanks for the update, jlong! I had heard that it was one citizen that grabbed his rifle away from him, but hadn’t heard this part about several neighbors. About to read the article you posted!

Wow! I’m REALLY impressed with this article. I can’t BELIEVE that The NY Times included the full one hour video of their service from 10/29! I’ve NEVER seen that before!

They’re not sure yet whether the cops took him out or he committed suicide.

Still needed. Need to talk to these people, find true motivations, hell study them.

Latest news is that a private citizen fired a shotgun at the suspect as he was escaping. It is unknown whether the suspect was hit by the citizen.

This is a small church in a small town. Unthinkable.

Yes, that’s what I just told someone below. The church is clapboard, if that tells you anything—a very old, country style church building. A small community. I think they’re going to need a lot of outside help to investigate this.

I really want to know more details. It doesn’t sound like a terrorist.

I just read another article from CNN. This is what one person said about how small the community is:

"There's two gas stations, the church, a community center, post office, a Dollar General, a tire shop," she said. "That's about it."

The gunman , Devin Kelley, is dead. He was 26, white, and Courtmartialed from Air Force 3 years ago.

Thanks, lcamino. Have they said what he was court martialed for or what his motive was?

No, not that I’ve seen.

My heart is breaking. This hits really close to home. Both the pastor and his wife were out of state, in separate states, but their 14 yo daughter is dead, among many others. I just can’t imagine that happening to us!

The shooter spent a year in the brig for spouse and child abuse.

11/05/17 10:03 pm

Yes, and was dishonorably discharged also. Which means it was ILLEGAL for him to have a weapon, the way I understand it.

Any reports of military casualties? Been to San Antonio many times for training including Basic Training.

No. I read several different stories from CNN, BBC, etc. and they haven’t even begun to piece it together yet. It looks to be a very small community. The church was clapboard, if that tells you anything. I’m assuming they’re probably going to need a lot of outside help.
