Devin Kelley: Texas church gunman was kicked out of Air Force over domestic violence 

Devin Kelley: Texas church gunman was kicked out of Air Force over domestic violence The alleged gunman responsible for the massacre at a Texas church was a veteran who was kicked out of the US Air Force following a court martial for domestic violence charges.  Devin Kelley, 26, who lived in New Braunfels near San Antonio, opened fire on Sunday at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 26 people and wounding about 20 others, authorities said.  Ann Stefanek, an Air Force spokeswoman, said Kelley was discharged from the Air Force for allegedly assaulting his spouse and child. She said he served 12 months' confinement after a 2012 court-martial and ultimately received a bad conduct discharge and reduction in rank. She said Kelley served in Logistics Readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge in 2014. His job responsible for moving passengers, cargo and personal property in military transportation. Sutherland Springs shooting, in pictures Authorities did not announce his name at a news conference on the shooting, saying only that the suspect was a white male in his 20s. But a US official and a law enforcement official identified Kelley as the gunman. The US official told The Associated Press that Kelley did not appear to be linked to organised terrorist groups. The official said investigators were looking at social media posts Kelley may have made in the days before Sunday's attack. Kelley's Facebook page has been deleted, but cached photos show a profile picture where he appeared with two small children. He also posted a photo of what appeared to be an AR-15 style semi-automatic weapon, writing a post that read: “she's a bad bitch.” An address listed in online records as belonging to Kelley is located in New Braunfels, Texas, just outside San Antonio and about 35 miles from Sutherland Springs. Local records of an August traffic ticket issued in New Braunfels, Texas, for an expired registration and not having auto insurance give a birthdate that would make him 26 years old. At the address listed for Kelley in New Braunfels, two sheriff's vans were parked outside and police officers stood at the gate of a cattle fence surrounding the property.  Neighbours said they heard intense gunfire coming from the direction of the address listed for Kelley in recent days. “It's really loud. At first I thought someone was blasting,” said Ryan Albers, 16, who lives across the road. “It had to be coming from somewhere pretty close. It was definitely not just a shotgun or someone hunting. It was someone using automatic weapon fire.” A person matching Kelley's name and date of birth also registered in 2014 to vote in Colorado, with an address listed in Colorado Springs, home of the US Air Force Academy.  A woman prays after a mass shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas Credit: Reuters According to Texas Department of Public Safety regional director Freeman Martin, the gunman arrived at a Valero gas station near the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs at around 11:20 am on Sunday. He was dressed in black, wearing tactical gear and a ballistic vest. He crossed the street to the church, left his vehicle and started firing a Ruger AR assault-type rifle at the church. Then he entered the church and fired. After the shooting, Kelley was fired on by a local resident with a rifle. The suspect dropped his assault weapon, and fled in his vehicle, said Freeman Martin, regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Soon afterward, the suspect crashed his vehicle near the border of neighboring Guadalupe County and was found dead inside with a cache of weapons. It was not immediately clear if the suspect killed himself or was hit when the resident fired at him outside the church, authorities said.
