I have discovered that the mass murderer that shot up the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX was 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley. As far as I know as of this writing, Kelley’s name is the only verifiable certainty.
Devin Patrick Kelley
Unverifiable theories have popped up from news sources often disparaged by the Left as Conspiracist and/or far-right. Which means as far as the Mainstream Media (MSM) is concerned, has no credibility.
The top of the list Kelley is that he was a part of Antifa or ISIS. The Left is so dead set against Antifa or ISIS that I ran into a comment supporting the MSM vocal debunking so much, the Leftie speculated Kelley was a far-right racist on a murder spree.
The thing is the police-authorities are not giving out any basic info other than name and Kelley being a dishonorably discharged Air Force vet, noting the discharge was for domestic abuse against his wife and child.
I’m going to look at the Antifa angle courtesy of the Leftist-hated Fox News that dug into humint facts. After reading this info, you decide if the MSM absolute denial is credible or if the Right are at least better guessers:
Shocked former classmates who attended middle and high school with Texas church gunman Devin Patrick Kelley described him Monday as being heavily medicated and someone who kept to himself -- despite a deluge of posts on his apparent Facebook profile about weapons and atheism.
Kelley -- dressed entirely in black and "wearing a face mask with a white skull on it," according to Texas Department of Public Safety's regional director Freeman Martin -- burst into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday and killed at least 26 people, one as young as 18-months old.
Another classmate who spoke to Fox News and wished to remain anonymous described Kelley as a quiet student, though he had his share of friends.
“He recently added me on [Facebook]. I accepted hence we went to school together, and any time I saw him on my timeline he was sharing stuff about guns and being atheist,” she said. “He was pretty negative. The last post I remember was of a rifle.”
Kelley’s Facebook page has since been taken down.
Brittany Adcock, a 22-year-old who told NBC News that she dated Kelley for two months when she was 13 and he was 18, said Kelley would constantly call her after she broke off the relationship.
"I don't think the church was just randomly attacked," he said [i.e. Governor Abbot]. "I think there was a reason why the shooter chose this church."
The gunman was also denied a Texas gun permit, according to Abbott. [Blog Editor: Bold Text Mine for all those Leftist anti-2nd Amendment/gun control propagandists.]

Did you notice the part that said, ‘Kelley -- dressed entirely in black and "wearing a face mask with a white skull on it," …’ OR: ‘He was pretty negative. The last post I remember was of a rifle.”
Kelley’s Facebook page has since been taken down.’
Here some more news from not so-MSM called Metro. However, according to the Metro About Page they have a large circulation as well as online:

And now the Metro Devin Kelley info:
Was the Texas church shooter a member of Antifa? Many people are wondering if Devin Patrick Kelley was a member of the anti-fascism (hence, Antifa) group …
Although fake news swirls after any big tragedy, especially those difficult to comprehend because of their violence, we do know some things for certain about Kelley. We know that he opened fire on parishioners attending a Sunday service at a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5. We know that he killed at least 26 people [Blog Editor: Many in the media are saying killed 27 because he killed a pregnant lady. Sure to irritate pro-abortionists]. We know he was wearing all black.
But there are also reports going around that he was holding an Antifa flag during the attack and told the churchgoers “this is a communist revolution.”
One such report wrote that the Texas church shooter “has been identified as Devin Kelley, an Antifa member who vowed to start a civil war by ‘targeting white conservative churches’ and causing anarchy in the United States.” (Was the Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley a member of Antifa? By Linnea Zielinski; Metro; 11/6/17 – Updated same no time given)
In the interest of fair and balanced, Metro finishes their report with the Leftist contention everything about Communist Antifa was fabricated:
Antifa United posted to their Facebook group images of the Texas church shooter and the supposed image of their flag, Snopes reports, and were insistent that the image was a fake and that the image was pulled from them and used by some other source to forge a connection between Kelley and the group. The post claims that the “far-right (badly) put together a collage of images/mock up of a FB profile and are claiming the Texas shooter uploaded a picture of his antifa flag.”
The post went on to explain “That's OUR picture. Pulled from our shop website when we had that flag design in stock. The person holding it in the picture is me. The admin of this page. In my office.”

UK media’s The Sun doesn’t mention Antifa or ISIS, but enough info that indicates to me that Devin Kelley was a nut job Leftist as indicated by a history of mental illness and Leftist agitating atheism. If he wasn’t an Antifa enthusiast, Kelley definitely was a candidate for Antifa thuggery:
Classmate Nina Rosa Nava write on Facebook that the mass murderer used to rant on the social network about his atheist beliefs.
She said: “He was always talking about how people who believe in God were stupid and trying to preach his atheism.”
Fellow user Christopher Leo Longoria replied: “I removed him off FB for those same reasons! He was being super nagtive (sic) all the timd (sic).”
Cord Eubank Brown said on social media that he went to high school with “maniac” Kelley.
He wrote: “There were people I knew who stayed away from this guy for many reasons, which all make sense now. He just requested me on Facebook recently.”
Another former classmate, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Mail that Kelley “always creeped me out and was different.”
He added: “I ended up distancing myself from him in high school after he got in an argument with me in school and he tried punching me several times. Dude was crazy man.”
Kelley's now deleted Facebook page showed a photo of what appeared to be an assault rifle, posted under the words: "She's a bad b****."
The page also featured the Mark Twain quote: "I do not fear death."
The gunman was dressed in black, tactical-type gear and wearing a ballistic vest when he entered the church during the late morning service.
Locals have described how Kelley was stopped by two brave men who fatally wounded the “deranged” killer before running his getaway car off the road.
Local man Stephen Willeford managed to shoot the mass killer in between his body armour, it has been claimed
Rifle-wielding plumber Willeford managed to shoot Kelley in between his body armour, with the bullet piercing his side, reports the Mail Online.
Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin also confirmed that the 55-year-old, known as an excellent shot in the small town, “grabbed his rifle and engaged the suspect.”
The resident said that Willeford and fellow local Johnnie Langendorff jumped in the latter’s truck and gave chase to Kelley – who had grabbed a hostage and had fled in an SUV.
But when Langendorff managed to run the depraved killer off the road, the pair of heroes realised that Kelley had bled out after earlier being shot by Willeford, claims the local. … READ ENTIRETY ('SHE'S A BAD B***H' Texas church shooting – Facebook rants of ‘creepy’ massacre gunman Devin Kelley, 26, who preached about atheism before killing 26 churchgoers; By Mark Hodge; The Sun; 11/6/17 10:00 pm [Whatever UK time is] – 11/6/17 10:32 pm)
This version of the two local Texas heroes is first time I heard it. Before this, I had not heard Willeford’s name or that he hit Kelley. It was suggested that Kelley might have shot himself to death.
