    Two shot, one fatally, outside church in Fresno, CA.

    Fox News


    St. Alphonsus Church in Fresno, California. (Google)

    Two people were shot in the parking lot of St. Alphonsus Church in Fresno on Sunday and police were involved in a standoff nearby with someone believed to be the gunman, the Fresno Bee reports.

    According to dispatch and eyewitness reports, the shooter got out of a vehicle, fired his gun at the victims who were shot inside a blue Toyota, and returned to the car to flee the scene.


    Father Dominic Rajappa told the Fresno Bee that morning mass had just ended and churchgoers were leaving when gunfire broke out.


    One person reportedly died. More than an hour later, her body, covered by a blue tarp, was still lying between two cars, according to the Fresno Bee. The other victim’s status was not immediately known.


    Rajappa said he didn’t believe many people saw the shooting, but it left parishioners shaken. “They were really scared,” he told the Fresno Bee.


    Police officers were massing outside of a house on California Avenue near Arthur Avenue, where the alleged shooter was believed to be holed up.


    According to dispatch reports, police were trying to evacuate nearby homes before attempting to get the alleged shooter to surrender.


    No additional information was available.

    Another case of why/how with a prior history of being violent, whether it be a spouse or an animal abuser, has not just a gun but an assault rifle..and the military is training people that are not mentally stable in weaponry....

    Man linked to Texas shooting faced military court martial

    Bailey LeJeaune, 17, and David Betancourt, 18, hold candles during a vigil in Sutherland Springs for the victims of a deadly shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas,

    By NOMAAN MERCHANT and PAUL J. WEBER
    From Associated Press
    November 05, 2017 11:18 PM EST

    NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (AP) — The man authorities have identified as the gunman in a mass shooting at a Texas church was discharged from the Air Force for allegedly assaulting his spouse and child, according to an Air Force spokeswoman.

    The spokeswoman, Ann Stefanek, said Sunday that Devin Kelley served 12 months' confinement after a 2012 court-martial. He ultimately received a bad conduct discharge and reduction in rank.

    She said Kelley served in Logistics Readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge in 2014. His job responsible for moving passengers, cargo and personal property in military transportation.

    Authorities did not announce his name at a news conference on the shooting, saying only that the suspect was a white male in his 20s.

    But a U.S. official and a law enforcement official identified Kelley as the person who opened fire Sunday at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 26 people and wounding about 20 others.

    The U.S. official told The Associated Press that Kelley lived in a San Antonio suburb and that he doesn't appear to be linked to organized terrorist groups. The official said investigators are looking at social media posts Kelley may have made in the days before Sunday's attack, including one that appeared to show an AR-15 style semi-automatic weapon. The official requested anonymity because the person did not have authorization to speak publicly.

    An address listed in online records as belonging to Kelley is located in New Braunfels, Texas, just outside San Antonio and about 35 miles (56 kilometers) from Sutherland Springs.

    Local records of an August traffic ticket issued in New Braunfels, Texas, for an expired registration and not having auto insurance give a birthdate that would make him 26 years old.

    At the address listed for Kelley in New Braunfels, two sheriff's vans were parked outside and police officers stood at the gate of a cattle fence surrounding the property. Law enforcement officials gathered at the property declined to comment on why they were there. Several messages left for his relatives went unreturned.

    Neighbors said that they heard intense gunfire coming from the direction of the address listed for Kelley in recent days.

    "It's really loud. At first I thought someone was blasting," said Ryan Albers, 16, who lives across the road. "It had to be coming from somewhere pretty close. It was definitely not just a shotgun or someone hunting. It was someone using automatic weapon fire."

    A person matching Kelley's name and date of birth also registered in 2014 to vote in Colorado, with an address listed in Colorado Springs, home of the U.S. Air Force Academy. The Colorado Secretary of State's office lists his registration now as inactive.

    According to Texas Department of Public Safety regional director Freeman Martin, the gunman arrived at a Valero gas station near the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs at around 11:20 a.m. Sunday. He was dressed in black, wearing tactical gear and a ballistic vest.

    He crossed the street to the church, left his vehicle and started firing a Ruger AR assault-type rifle at the church. Then he entered the church and fired.

    As he left the church, the shooter met an unidentified area resident with his own rifle who pursued him. The suspect was found dead in his vehicle near the border between Wilson and Guadalupe counties.

    Martin says it's unclear if he died of a self-inflected wound or was shot by the resident.

    Texas shooter had ties to church through family members

    By Chris Perez
    November 6, 2017 | 12:40am | Updated

    The Air Force airman believed to be behind Sunday’s mass shooting in Texas was a registered security guard who worked at a nearby water park and had ties to the church he targeted through family members, a report says.

    Devin Kelley
    , 26, was not a member of the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, but he was connected to the house of worship through relatives, according to the San Antonio Express-News.


    Law enforcement officials told the local newspaper that the young man had a relatively clean record, with just a few minor traffic offenses in recent years.


    He was reportedly employed by the popular Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort in New Braunfels and licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety as a security guard.


    Kelley — who was court-martialed and sentenced to 12 months’ confinement for assaulting his wife and child — was given a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force in 2014. He had tried appealing his conviction to the US State Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, to no avail.


    The suspected mass shooter doesn’t appear to be connected to any terrorist organizations or groups. A LinkedIn profile purportedly belonging to him says he graduated from high school in 2013 and was a former Bible school teacher.


    Kelley’s massacre Sunday, which left 26 people dead and 20 more injured, was the deadliest shooting in Texas history. He was believed to be using a Ruger AR-style rifle, which he reportedly purchased from an Academy Sports & Outdoors store in San Antonio.
