Devin Patrick Kelley fatally shot 26 people at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his adopted daughter in the attack, said leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention collectively made the decision to demolish the church, after it was deemed too painful to continue using the building as a place of worship. Add Texas Church Shooting as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Texas Church Shooting news, video, and analysis from ABC News. She told CBS' "Inside Edition" that her short marriage to Kelley was filled with abuse and described one violent interaction she had with him over a speeding ticket.

The Air Force has admitted it failed to notify the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the conviction, which would have barred Kelley from purchasing firearms. In November 2012, he pleaded guilty in a military court to strangling, striking and pulling the hair of Brennaman on multiple occasions, as well as fracturing his stepson's skull.

Tessa Brennaman, 25, told Inside Edition that Kelley, 26, was abusive toward her and threatened to shoot her. "He (pleaded) to intentionally doing it, served a year of confinement, then received a bad conduct discharge".

The mother-in-law sometimes attended services at the church but was not present on Sunday.

Law enforcement officials continue their investigation at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church as the sun begins to rise on November 6, 2017 in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Jackson, the county's top administrator, says the scene will affect them the rest of their lives.

Veterans Day has special meaning this year in the small South Texas community where a church massacre occurred last weekend.

An Air Force official has said that 12 of the victims had direct connections to the Air Force, "either members or with family ties". He was later found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Investigators have said Sunday's shooting appeared to stem from a domestic dispute involving Kelley and the mother of his second wife, and that he had sent threatening messages to her.
