Updated: Witness to Texas Church shooting: a neighbor shot suspect causing him to leave the scene

5 Nov , 2017   Video

UPDATE: Here is a dramatic article describing how Devin Patrick Kelley was going back to kill the people he had initially wounded when Stephen Willeford entered the front door of the church and shot Kelley.

As Farida Brown lay on the floor in the last row of pews in Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church, the 73-year-old woman felt certain she would be the next one killed.

And she almost was.

The gunman had fired numerous rounds into her legs. She was shot four times, but they all struck soft tissue. None of her bones were broken, and no arteries were hit, her son said. But the man was revisiting those he had shot to make sure they were dead and if they weren’t, he was shooting them once more.

Brown’s recollections of the horror that she and others in the church experienced, as told to her son, are among the first offered by one of the 20 wounded Sunday in the rampage that killed 26 churchgoers. . . .

“Then she thought that it was her turn . . . . She just started praying.”

At that moment, she heard a shot fired from a different man, at the front door.

The gunman has since been identified as Devin Patrick Kelley.

The other man, the one who confronted him, was Stephen Willeford, who lives near the church. . . .

Original Post: The first and third videos above have statements from witnesses about how a neighbor got his gun and stopped this attack before police were able to arrive on the scene.  One of the witnesses said that if it weren’t for the neighbor, the attack “would have been much worse.”  A third witness who also told KSAT a similar story.

Summer Caddel said her boyfriend, Johnnie Langendorff, called her moments after the shooting at First Baptist Church and told her that he saw a gunfight between the shooter and a neighbor, who was returning fire.

Langendorff then told Caddel the suspect — who has not been publicly identified — then got into an SUV and drove away, and the two gave chase. . . .

The second video above has a statement from the Texas Department of Public Safety that confirms those statements.

Within about three hours of the attack, before we knew hardly any facts, Democrats were already calling for more gun control. CBS reports that Devin Patrick Kelley, the killer, served in the U.S. Air Force from 2010 to May of 2014, at which point he was court-martialed and given a dishonorable discharge.  It was thus illegal for Kelley to own a gun.

A list of mass public shootings that have been stopped by citizens with permitted concealed handguns is available here.

    Gun control does not stop gun violence. Good people with guns stops gun violence.

      Exactly!! Maybe, just maybe if FB weren’t so busy censoring conservatives, they “could” have prevented these murders by flagging “real” threats…

  2. Bill Holly says:

    You Democrat scumbags will stoop to any level to try and destroy the Constitutional rights of those you consider beneath you, while at the same time reserving those very rights to yourselves. Y’all are the lowest of the low.

  3. Siobhra A DeWar says:

    You just reduced the death’s of many people to party politics. How disgusting. A good person with a gun stopped it. The answer will come when the public decide to join with the NRA instead of making things worse with the gun grabbers.

  4. Steven R. Goellner says:

    the problem is the damn democrats got rid of Jesus Christ from schools and everywhere so people have no morals anymore

  5. James Moore says:

    Why do you people insist on blaming guns. Blame the idiots who snap because of your inept attempts to evaluate the mental disorders these people develop. But I suppose it’s easier for you to blame guns, than to admit your policies are a total failure. Go figure.

  6. Tim Canaday says:

    It’s time for common sense gun laws! Common sense is that in a dangerous world citizens need to be able to exercise there constitutional right to bare arms anywhere in America just like the rest of our rights! I should be able to carry anywhere I feel the need to protect my life or the lives of others!

  7. James Franklin says:

    To all you idiots in Congress:
    The violence will not stop until you stop wasting time going after lawabiding citizens and actually do your job, going after the criminals.

  8. C N says:

    Democrats dancing in the blood of the victims. Durbin, Harris, all the rest are no better than vermin.

  9. jason bishof says:

    when the good guys have guns the world is a better place.

  10. VivIan Kay Fisk says:

    It’s not an issue of gun control. Because regardless of how many guns you take away from the good guys that many guns will get in the hands of the hateful and the killers

  11. He only got in there because he thought it was a gun-free zone which it was I guess well be able to carry a gun anywhere we want to go except for police stations Federal building and obvious places the non-believers a gun will be out in full force now it is not the gun it’s the person

  12. Sebron Dowden says:

    Sounds like a bunch of liberal air heads. The man was already prohibited from owning a weapon the law is really a deterrent to a criminal. These democrat air heads must possess a special brand of stupidity.

  13. It won’t matter if the government decides to make harsher gun laws or not. If someone wants to hurt or kill people they will find a way to do it regardless of the law!

  14. Bert says:

    So…he was not allowed to have a gun. I am. And now you want to take mine away so only these terrorists, because ANTIFA are terrorists, will have guns? Only them and not anybody else? Then you looneys calling for gun control should also give up your guns that are attached to your bodyguards…

  15. William Komar says:

    Antifa said the revolution started yesterday. The blood of the victims is not even cold yet and as per uzual the left in this,country calls for gun control . Nothing but political opportunists.

  16. woodchuckwacker666 says:

    … Historically party members from the left and/or right have committed mass killings in order to enact more laws for gun control that will leave even more people open to violence… always remember that the asshole dictators named Castro, Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, etc. murdered millions once they had control…

  17. Angie says:

    Congress cant stop humans from being violent… that is such a crock of shit!

  18. Richard Mattson says:

    We will have to get rid of Planes, Trucks, Cars, Fertilizer, Knife’s, these are just many of the killers of people, gun control is not the answer.

    Go back a number of years with the start of the green card, this was the start of the problem people coming into our country, Democrat’s and Republican’ parties are all to blame, think it over and read back in history and you will find the problem.

    I sorry for the people that lost their lives, I know God is trying to help, but we have a lot of work to do to help God with our problems.

  19. Tim Guiney says:

    Senators Durbin, Casey, and Richard Blumenthal if that guy with a rifle had acted when he did, and in the way he did, there would have been a lot wore dead and injured on Sunday. The fact of the matter is he stopped that Muslim Terrorist, and prevented a much higher casualty rate.
    He is an American Hero,and should be praised for his actions.
