The video also shows an “underbarrel 12-gauge shotgun” being attached to the rifle.

Kelley previously posted a picture of a rifle on his Facebook reading, “She’s a bad bitch.” He obtained weapons despite his previous conviction for domestic assault due to a likely clerical error.

USA Today tweeted after the video was released to clarify that the Texas shooter “did not use a chainsaw bayonet.”
