Air Force failed to keep guns from Texas church shooter

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Milwaukee Wisconsin -

WASH­ING­TON – The Air Force failed four times to pro­vide au­thor­i­ties with in­for­ma­tion that could have pre­vented mass mur­derer Devin Kel­ley from buy­ing weapons, ac­cord­ing to a Depart­ment of De­fense in­spec­tor gen­eral’s re­port re­leased Fri­day.

On Nov. 5, 2017, Kel­ley burst into the First Bap­tist Church of Suther­land Springs, Texas, and opened fire with an as­sault-style ri­fle. He later killed him­self.

It was the dead­li­est mass shoot­ing at a church in Amer­i­can his­tory, with 25 peo­ple killed plus an un­born child.

Kelly was able to buy the weapons be­cause the Air Force had not re­ported his crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity to au­thor­i­ties.
