Johnnie Langendorf was driving by the scene of the Sutherland Springs Church shooting when he witnessed shooter Devin Patrick Kelley exchanging gunfire with another man. After Kelley fled the scene, Langendorf and the man chased after the killer in his truck.
After Kelley lost control of his vehicle, the man jumped out of Langendorf’s truck and pointed his rifle at the killer until police arrived on scene.
Summer Caddel said her boyfriend, Johnnie Langendorff, called her moments after the shooting at First Baptist Church and told her that he saw a gunfight between the shooter and a neighbor, who was returning fire.
Langendorff then told Caddel the suspect — identified at Devin Kelley — then got into an SUV and drove away, and the two gave chase.
While on the phone with 911, Langendorff told his girlfriend the chase came to an end near a sharp curve near country roads 307 and 539.
Caddel understood that to mean the Kelley crashed. Moments later law enforcement officers arrived, she said.
She also said she has not spoken to her boyfriend in hours and that his phone was taken as evidence.
Earlier today, San Antonio police announced they were searching the home of the Sutherland Springs church shooter for explosive devices.
Police are checking for explosive devices at the home of a man suspected of shooting and killing at least 27 people and wounding more than 20 in a Sutherland Springs church on Sunday.
The San Antonio Police Department is sending a K9 unit to the scene, an official told mySA.com, though it’s unclear where the home is.
The shooter, now deceased, opened fire on a group of people at First Baptist
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, at least 27 people are dead after a gunman opened fire inside the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas.
Daily Mail UK reports:
The shooting happened at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, where around 50 people usually attend service, according to local reports.
Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr told CNN that at least 26 people have been killed in the shooting, but the death toll is expected to climb.
‘My heart is broken,’ Gamez said. ‘We never think where it can happen, and it does happen. It doesn’t matter where you’re at. In a small community, real quiet and everything, and look at this, what can happen.’
