Devin P. Kelley, the gunman who killed 26 people in a Texas church, reportedly escaped from a mental health facility in 2012.
According to Channel 2 Houston, Kelley was institutionalized while he was in the U.S. Air Force after being charged with assaulting his wife and baby stepson.
A 2012 police report shows that he escaped from the psychiatric hospital after making death threats against his superiors in the Air Force and trying to smuggle weapons onto the base where he was stationed.
Kelley escaped from Peak Behavioral Health Services, a facility in New Mexico, and was caught by police in El Paso, Texas on June 7, 2012.
A witness told police that Kelley suffered from mental disorders and had plans to run to from Peak Behavioral Health Services by purchasing a bus ticket to get out of the state.
Kelley was a danger to himself and others as he had already been caught sneaking firearms onto Holloman Air Force base, the witness stated. Kelley was attempting to carry out death threats on his superiors in the Air Force.

Run both to and from?
Mental disorders indeed, somewhere.
Everyone screwed up on this jerk.
He was one sick bastard. They’re walking among us.
BATFE form 4473, q.11f: Have you ever been adjucated mentally defective (which includes having been adjudicated incompetent to manage your own affairs) or have been committed to a mental institution?
Everyone = USAF
Guns and the NRA weren’t the problem. Failure to enforce the gun laws already on the books is the problem.
“El Paso police arrested him at a bus stop and turned him over to New Mexico police.” [after escape]
El Paso police incident report:
But... but... we need more gun control laws!!!
Thanks for the info!!
Ping to perp being further disqualified from owning/possessing firearms...
His father Michael Kelley, is a computer programmer and accountant...The house is about an hour from the church where the shooting occurred. Shooter lived in a barn that was remodeled into an apartment.
The Air Force is looking for some E-4 to be the scapegoat for this MEGAFUBAR.
So many people and institutions screwed up. Best case I can think of for each person taking full responsibility for themselves, infirm, handicapped,minors in custody in their sphere.
We should start a count of how many laws the scumbag broke.
27 counts murder
illegal possession of a firearm
lying on a federal form
domestic assault on a minor
Domestic assault of a spouse
assault with intent to do great bodily harm on a minor
20 counts of attempted murder
using a firearm in city limits
Escape of a confined institution
Got to be 20 or 30 more felonies. Just one more would have stopped him.
Now we know more about the typical CNN fan.
Interesting is the shooters parents are strangely quiet.......they look to be pretty well off......I haven’t seen or heard a thing about the other than the photo posted here on this thread of their lavish spread where they live...
Everyone screwed up on this jerk.
Doesn’t matter. To crooked politicians, cracking down on law abiding gun owners is always the best solution.
