Body Cam Video: Good Guy with Gun Tells Police How He Stopped Texas Church Attacker
It was a week ago that the nation watched news of the Texas church attack unfold and quickly learned that the attacker fled the scene after being shot by a good guy with a gun.
Breitbart News reported that the good guy was Stephen Willeford, a Sutherland Springs, Texas, resident who grabbed his AR-15, ran out of his house barefoot, and shot at killer Devin Kelley, causing him to flee.
Willeford told KHBS, “I was scared to death. I was. I was scared for me, and I was scared for every one of them, and I was scared for my own family that just lived less than a block away.” Yet Willeford put his fears behind him and went to the church, took cover behind a vehicle, and waited for Kelley to come outside. Once Kelley emerged, Willeford took a shot. “He saw me, and I saw him. I was standing behind a pickup truck for cover. I know I hit him. He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his side window. When the window dropped, I fired another round at him again.”
Willeford then climbed into a truck driven by Johnnie Langendorff and the two gave chase. The 12 to 15 minute chase ended with Kelley running off the road and dying.
