A record search found 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley had an address in Colorado Springs before moving to Texas, according to voter records in Texas and Colorado.

A LinkedIn account reveals Kelley, who was married, was a former Bible studies teacher.

He was reportedly court-martialed in 2012 for two counts of assault on his wife and child, according to an Air Force spokesman.

He was sentenced to 12 months’ confinement after the court-martial, and received a bad conduct discharge and was demoted in rank.

The suspect was killed during the attack, according to authorities. It is unknown if the gunshot was self-inflicted or if he was shot by a resident.

Kelley served in Logistics Readiness in Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge in 2014, according to The Associated Press.

In 2014, he moved to the Fountain Creek RV Park in Colorado Springs, according to public records.

Kelley registered as an unaffiliated voter in 2014, according to state voter records, but he never voted.

He did not have a criminal record in the state, according to a Colorado Bureau of Investigation background check.

Kelley did not serve in the Air Force during his time in Colorado Springs.

Authorities say Kelley walked into the First Baptist Church while a church service was underway around 11:30 a.m. CST.

He reportedly used a .223 rifle and additional firearms were found in his vehicle.

Kelley had recently posted a photo of an AR-15 style gun on his Facebook page with the caption: 'She's a bad b****h'

Among the dead is the 14-year-old daughter of the church’s pastor, Frank Pomeroy, according to his wife, Sherri Pomeroy, the girl’s mother.

The couple were traveling out of state when the shooting occurred.

Sutherland Springs is in Wilson County, about 30 miles east of San Antonio.
