Mourning, prayers for Church shooting victims in Texas

Image result for Mourning, prayers for Church shooting victims in TexasA prayer vigil was held on Monday evening in Sutherland Springs, Texas as residents gathered to honor the victims of the deadly mass shooting at a baptist church that killed at least 26 worshippers and wounded 20 others.

Earlier, the U.S. Air Force says it failed to provide information as required about the shooter’s criminal history to a U.S. law enforcement database – something that should have blocked any legal access to firearms in the United States.

Devin Patrick Kelley, an Air Force veteran who police say put on tactical gear, a ballistic vest and skull-like mask while carrying out the most deadly mass shooting in the modern history of Texas, was convicted five years ago by a general court-martial on two charges of domestic assault against his wife and step-son.

The Air Force said that information was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database, which the Federal Bureau of Investigation oversees and uses to run the required background check requests from gun dealers before a sale.
