On Sunday, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire inside First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas outside of San Antonio, killing 26 people and injuring 24.

Devin Kelley was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force.
It was against the law for him to own firearms.

On Monday Wilson County Texas Sheriff Joe Tackett told Today Show that Devin Patrick Kelley’s former in-laws attend the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The Daily Mail reported:

The Texas church shooter had family connections to the church where he killed at least 26 on Sunday in what is now the worst mass shooting in the state’s history.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackett told the Today show Monday morning that Devin Patrick Kelley’s ex in-laws attended the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, where he unleashed a firestorm of bullets during Sunday morning service.

It was previously reported that Kelley’s wife Danielle was a former teacher at the school, and that her mother Michelle was a parishoner.

But the sheriff’s revelation that it was his ex in-laws who attended the church indicates that he and Danielle may have had a falling out.

Sheriff Tackett said the family was not at the church at the time of the shooting, but spoke to investigators yesterday after the massacre.
