Texas Church Shooter Was An ‘Outcast’ Who ‘Preached Atheism’ Online


Devin Patrick Kelley was the 26-year-old man who stormed the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas and ruthlessly gunned down 26 people and injured another 24. He walked into the church wearing all black tactical gear, a ski mask and also a military-style assault rifle.

He was later shot by a local man and died shortly after a car chase.

At the time of writing, it is unclear whether he committed suicide or was killed by the local man’s gunshot wounds.

According to law enforcement, Devin walked into the church dressed in all-black tactical gear with a ballistics belt and an assault rifle. He started firing randomly into the crowd.

He fired round after round into the crowd of innocent churchgoers until a local 55-year-old man by the name of Stephen Willeford shot at him with his rifle. The bullet hit Devin on the side in between his body armor.


Devin dropped his rifle as he was shot, grabbed a hostage and rushed into his SUV in order to flee the scene. But another local resident, Johnnie Langendorff, saw the shooting go down, and along with Stephen, chased the shooter down in his truck.


It was near the 307 and 539 as the car approached a sharp turn when Devin lost control of his vehicle and swerved off the road. When the two men found him he was already dead, apparently due to the blood loss from the gunshot wound.
