BREAKING: Texas Church Shooter May Have Been Atheist, Stopped by Armed Citizen

Earlier this morning, a gunman entered a Texas church and opened fire, killing at least 27 people and injuring two dozen more. At least one child has been shot -- a 14 year old girl (reported dead) and possibly a four-year-old boy.

The shooter has been identified by authorities as Devin Patrick Kelley, a 26 year old resident of Sutherland Springs.

Heavy.com reports that Kelley previously served in the U.S. Air Force before receiving a court martial and a dishonorable discharge.

Kelley's facebook page (which has since been removed), prominently displayed an AR-15 rifle with the caption "She's a bad bitch."

While sources have not yet released a motive for the shooting, further analysis of Kelley's facebook page reveals that he may have been an atheist:

YourNewsWire.com has reported that Kelley was a member of Antifa, however this cannot yet be verified. From the article:

The gunman who opened fire inside a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, has been identified as Devin Kelly, an Antifa member who vowed to start a civil war by “targeting white conservative churches” and causing anarchy in the United States.

Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr said that at least 27 people have been killed in the shooting, according to reports by the CNN and the BBC, with the confirmed death toll expected to climb in the coming hours.

Witnesses report they saw Devin Kelly walk into the Baptist Church in the small town 30 miles from San Antonio at 11:30am local time Sunday, according to KSAT-12.

Devin Kelly, who killed at least 27 people and injured many more, was one of two shooters in the church, according to eyewitnesses, who also report Kelly carried an Antifa flag and told the churchgoers “this is a communist revolution” before unloading on the congregation, reloading several times.

Again, we would like to emphasize that this information may not be accurate -- we are working to verify the source of these claims:

Stay alert. Stay alive.

UPDATE (11-05-17): Law enforcement sources have indicated that Kelley was shot not by police but by an unidentified armed citizen, who gave chase shortly after the attack began. It is not clear at this time whether or not Kelley committed suicide after his vehicle crashed.
