Motive of Texas Church Shooting Was ‘Domestic Situation’ and Gunman Threatened Mother-in-Law

Authorities believe it was “a domestic situation” — and not terrorism — that fueled Sunday’s mass shooting inside a small church in rural Texas, killing at least 26 people, including an 18-month-old child.

During a Monday press conference, an FBI official confirmed that the shooter, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, had “expressed anger towards his mother-in-law,” who was a member of the congregation at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, the site of Sunday’s attack.

The shooter, officials said, had sent his mother-in-law several threatening text messages, but no report was ever filed with police.

Kelley is a former Air Force member who dressed in all-black tactical gear and was wearing a ballistics vest when he began firing from outside the church at around 11:30 a.m. local time, during a service.
