In an amazing eyewitness testimony, a man who lives near First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, described how his neighbor shot at the suspect to end the deadly church shooting.


The gunman, who has been identified as 26-year-old Devin P. Kelley, shot and killed at least 26 people on Sunday before a Texas gun owner engaged the suspect and forced him to flee in his vehicle.

In an interview with Kens5 News, the neighbor of the man who stopped the shooting described the incredible scene that took place.

“Our neighbor, he’s a very good guy, very big christian, he’s the nicest man on the planet, he would do anything for anyone around here,” the witness explained. “We’ve known him for years, he’s childhood friends with my dad.”

“He came with his [gun], and he took cover behind a car and he shot the guy–I’m not sure if it was inside the church as he was coming out–but if it wasn’t for him the guy wouldn’t have stopped,” he said. “And that’s when [the suspect] got in his vehicle and took off, and our friend shot through the window again trying to get him.”
