Autopsy Confirms Sutherland Springs Gunman Died By Suicide

The autopsy, released Thursday by the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office, says 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley also was shot in the torso and the left leg.

An autopsy has confirmed that the gunman who killed more than two dozen people at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs last year died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The autopsy, released Thursday by the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office, says 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley also was shot in the torso and the left leg.

The November attack at the church in Sutherland Springs was the worst mass shooting in Texas history. Kelley opened fire during Sunday services and was later found dead in a vehicle after he was shot and chased by two men who heard the gunfire at the church.

The autopsy, first reported on by San Antonio TV station KENS, also says toxicology tests detected marijuana and anti-anxiety drugs in his system.
