Officials identified the shooter as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley on the record Monday morning. Kelley, a New Braunfels resident, was wearing tactical gear and holding a variant on an AR-15.

The victims ranged in age from 5 to 72 and included the daughter of the church's pastor.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt recalled the horror inside the church Monday morning, saying "Wherever you walked in the church, it was death."
