Posted: Updated:

According to online records, the suspect in the Texas church shooting once lived in El Paso County.

Our partner station 9News in Denver revealed an online records search showing Devin Patrick Kelley, born in 1991, resided in Old Colorado City as recently as 2014, and was registered to vote in El Paso County at that time.

CNN is reporting, Kelly purchased the Ruger AR-556 rifle used in the attack from an Academy Sports & Outdoors store in San Antonio back in 2016. He also reportedly listed a Colorado Springs address when he bought the rifle.

The Pentagon confirms Kelly served in the Air Force, but details on his enlistment nor location of posting have not been released.

A church shooting at a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas has left reportedly 26 people dead and 20 wounded. A Texas Sheriff says a man walked into the church and started shooting.

According to the Associated Press the ongoing investigation revealed the gunman fled the church in a vehicle after the shooting and was also killed, either by a self inflicted wound or during a confrontation with police.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott says this was the deadliest mass shooting in the state's history. The victims ranged in age from five to 72 years old. 

Officials released the name of the shooter identified as 26-year old Devin Patrick Kelley. U.S. officials say Kelly's most recent address is in New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio. There are no known ties to any organized terrorists groups.
