Daily Caller reports:
Stephen Willeford, who is described as a former NRA instructor, grabbed an AR-15 when he discovered a man was shooting up the church and ran to the scene to stop him.
“I kept hearing the shots, one after another, very rapid shots – just ‘pop pop pop pop’ and I knew every one of those shots represented someone, that it was aimed at someone, that they weren’t just random shots,” Willeford told 4029 News.
“He saw me and I saw him. I was standing behind a pickup truck for cover,” Willeford said. “I know I hit him. He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his side window. When the window dropped, I fired another round at him again.”
Willeford was the “local member of the community,” who flagged down Johnnie Langendorff after the shooting. The two chased Kelley in Langendorff’s truck.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Johnnie Langendorff was driving by the scene of the Sutherland Springs Church shooting when he witnessed shooter Devin Patrick Kelley exchanging gunfire with another man. After Kelley fled the scene, Langendorff and the man chased after the killer in his truck.
“The neighbor with the rifle came to my truck and he opened my door and said, “He shot up the church”, and got in, Langendorff told Good Morning America on Monday.
“He said, “Chase him” so that’s what I did. I just chase him.”
“It seemed everybody had headed up to the church. I’m not sure if anybody really realized that he had left and gone that direction,” added Langendorf.
After Kelley lost control of his vehicle, the man jumped out of Langendorf’s truck and pointed his rifle at the killer until police arrived on scene.
