Texas officials confirm suspect’s ID as Devin Patrick Kelley

SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas (AP) — Officials in Texas have confirmed the identity of the man suspected of killing 26 people at a South Texas church.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Monday morning said 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley is the suspect. DPS said that Kelly lived in New Braunfels, which is about 35 miles north of the Sutherland Springs where the shooting occurred.

A short time after the shooting Sunday, the suspect was found dead in his vehicle at the county line.

On Sunday, two officials who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity had identified the gunman as Kelley.

DPS says more information will be released later Monday.
