A dramatic account of a high speed car chase after a mass shooting in a Texas church has emerged from one of the gunman’s pursuers, who describes a gunfight and subsequent crash.
Motorist Johnnie Langendorff has told how he was driving near to Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church on Sunday morning when he saw two men shooting at each other.
He saw the church gunman – now named as Devin Kelley – take off in his car and a member of the local community came over to ask for help.
Langendorff told a local TV station Ksat.com: “I pulled up to the intersection where the shooting happened. I saw two men exchanging gunfire, the other being the citizen of the community. The shooter of the church had taken off, fled in his vehicle, the other gentleman came and said we need to pursue him. And that’s what I did, I just acted.
Langendorff said he did not know the community member.
