ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The gunman who shot 26 worshipers to death and wounded 20 others at a Texas church on Sunday sustained three gunshot wounds, according to Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety. One of the injuries was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Martin said. Authorities said gunfire was exchanged between the gunman and two armed citizens during a vehicle chase after the shootings. The killer, Devin Kelley, 26, was previously convicted by court-martial of assaulting his first wife and step-son while serving in the U.S. Air Force and spent a year in detention before his bad-conduct discharge in 2014, according to the Pentagon. The Air Force acknowledged on Monday that it failed to enter Kelley's 2012 domestic violence offense into a U.S. government database used by licensed gun dealers for conducting background checks on firearms purchasers. A sporting goods retail chain has said Kelley passed background checks when he bought a gun in 2016 and a second firearm the following year.
