According to crowd-sourced (and therefore unverified) Everipedia, here’s what is currently being said about Kelley. He graduated from New Braunfels High School (which just over 30 miles away from Sutherland Springs) and he served in the US Air Force. Suspected Texas church shooter has been court-martialed and dishonorably discharged in May 2014. He allegedly taught a Bible Study class at a nearby church in 2013. Reports have also surfaced that his Mother-in-law owns a Sutherland Springs P.O. box, but that is unconfirmed.
Little is known about the Kelly’s motivation, but he was killed after a brief chase with local authorities that he led into Guadalupe County, which is adjacent to Wilson County’s Sutherland Springs where massacre took place. It is still unclear if he was killed by police or took his own life.
