Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, was dishonorably discharged in 2014 for bad conduct after serving four years in logistics readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, an Air Force spokeswoman said. In 2012, he was court-martialed on one count of assault on his spouse and another count of assault on their child, the spokeswoman said. He received a bad conduct discharge, reduction in rank and 12 months confinement, she said.
Kelley was found dead Sunday, officials said. An armed resident confronted the gunman outside the church, after which he fled and was later found shot in his car, authorities said. State troopers said at a news conference they did not know whether Kelley died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound or was shot by the armed resident.
