'Creepy, crazy and weird': Former classmates say Texas gunman was an 'outcast' who 'preached his atheism' online before killing 26 in the state’s worst ever mass shooting
The Texas church shooter who mercilessly shot dead 26 people and injured 24 others was an 'outcast' who 'preached his atheism' online.
Former classmates say Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, who stormed First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas and opened fire on Sunday, was 'creepy', 'crazy' and 'weird'.
Patrick Boyce, who attended New Braunfels High School with the killer, told DailyMail.com: 'He had a kid or two, fairly normal, but kinda quiet and lately seemed depressed.
'He was the first atheist I met. He went Air Force after high school, got discharged but I don't know why.
'I was just shocked [to hear the news]. Still haven’t quite processed how he could have done that.'
Nina Rose Nava, who went to school with the gunman, wrote on Facebook: 'In (sic) in complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my fb cause I couldn't stand his post.
'He was always talking about how people who believe in God we're stupid and trying to preach his atheism'
Christopher Leo Longoria replied: 'I removed him off FB for those same reasons! He was being super nagtive (sic) all the timd (sic).'
Michael Goff added: 'He was weird but never that damn weird, always posting his atheist sh** like Nina wrote, but damn he always posted pics of him and his baby - crazy.'
Nava added to DailyMail.com: 'I went to school with him. We had a few conversations here and there. It's not something I expected from him.
'He was an outcast but not a loner. He was popular among other outcast. I haven't spoke to him since high school.'
Another former classmate, who asked to remain anonymous, told DailyMail.com: 'I grew up going to school with him... Always creeped me out and was different.'
She said she moved away from the area while she was in junior high and lost touch with a lot of people.
Kelley walked into the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Sunday, dressed in black, tactical gear with a ballistics belt and an assault rifle, and began shooting, according to local law enforcement sources.
Kelley of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, was shot by Stephen Willeford, 55, before he climbed in an SUV to flee the scene, a local resident told DailyMail.com.
Another local resident, Johnnie Langendorff, who had witnessed the confrontation refused to let the shooter get away. Both he and Willeford, a local plumber, jumped in his truck and gave chase.
In a Facebook post, Langendorff's girlfriend Summer Caddel described how the pair had 'jumped in my boyfriend's truck and they chased that sick b*****d down in pursuit until the cops could catch up. He was able to run the shooter off of the road on 539!'
As they approached a sharp curve in the road, near the 307 and 539, Kelley appeared to lose control and his car swerved off the road.
Kelley was already dead when they found him, having succumb to blood loss from the gunshot wound he suffered at the church.
Cops discovered multiple weapons and possible explosives in his vehicle.
San Antonio police also raided Kelley's home on Sunday evening, with K9 and bomb squad units.
With all the Democrats and media screaming for more “gun control,” it turns out Texas terrorist Devin Kelley wasn’t legally able to own a gun since 2012. Five years ago, Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 for assault on his spouse and their child and received a Bad Conduct Discharge
Since 1996, Federal law prohibits a person who has been dishonorably discharged from buying or owning a firearm.
Based on this, Devin Kelley “broke the law” acquiring the firearm. Short of outright banning the sale of firearms in this country, NOTHING would have prevented this piece of shit from doing what he did today. The liberal filth that want to politicize this tragedy to try and push their gun grabbing agenda are just as disgusting as the Democrats who cheered on the terrorist and his actions in Sutherland Springs earlier today.
Kelley’s actions were purely based on hatred of religion. He was an atheist who hated Christians. That in my book qualifies as a terrorist attack. Devin Kelley also had several anti-Trump posts on his Facebook page before it was scrubbed. Don’t expect the media to mention any of this (his hatred of religion and Trump.)
