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."

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.
