26 lives were taken on Sunday, November 5 when Devin Patrick Kelley open fired on a church in Texas.

Kelley opened fire on the unsuspecting crowd, only stopping to reload his gun. There is footage captured at  that church, on that day. The police did not say whether or not they would release those films.

After the shooting, as he was leaving, a bystander shot him and he was wounded.  From there he had got in his car and began to drive.  The police had found Kelley dead in his car after shooting himself.

While in the air force, Kelley was convicted for abusing his now ex-wife and her son.  He also tried to smuggle firearms into the base and threatened to kill officers.

From there he was sent to a psychiatric hospital, which he had escaped from briefly.

Kelley was not supposed to be able to buy a gun because of his other convictions. The Air Force admitted to not putting the records in the national database.  He had bought four guns and three or the four had been found. The officers also have his iPhone and are trying to get it unlocked.

At one point Kelley was a regular at that church. His wife’s mother, and grandmother were regulars there.  His wife’s mother was not there at the time but her grandmother was one of the lives that was taken.

So far, nobody else had been linked to this shooting.  There are still investigators looking into this brutal case. All we know is that there is something wrong with this situation.
