At the time, police officers were warned that Kelley was a danger to himself and others and that he had sneaked guns into Holloman Air Force Base, where he reportedly also threatened his commanders. Kelley massacred 26 people, including his wife's grandmother, at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs.

She vowed a comprehensive review that she said will help "fix" the problem in the future. "We will find out why".

Texas gunman Devin Kelley escaped from a mental health facility years before his assault on a small-town church-and he had made threats that he would kill.

Kelley was sent to the facility after being brought up on charges for assaulting his wife and young stepson.

The incident report, filed by the El Paso Police Department, states Kelley was picked up at a bus terminal in downtown El Paso before midnight on the evening of June 7, 2012.

The hospital has declined to comment, saying in a statement that "we never discuss whether someone was or was not a patient at our hospital, and we never discuss any information about our patients".

Peak Behavioral Health Services is across the street from the Gadsden Independent School District offices and shares a busy parking lot with the Santa Teresa Family Medical Center. As a member of the US Air Force, Kelley served in logistics readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico starting in 2010.

Alvarez said he had a strong relationship with all the service members - but Kelley was an exception.

If that is the case however, it raises further questions about how well the background check system manages hundreds of departments entering thousands of convictions into three separate databases relied on by thousands of gun sellers to instantly vet potential customers.

"I said no", Dawn told the Express-News.

Aaron Alexis, a former reservist turned civilian contractor, passed state and federal background checks and legally purchased the pump-action shotgun used in the Washington Navy Yard shooting despite a history of violent outbursts and recent mental health treatment.

"The first thing that comes to mind is, where is there a break in the system?" "By all the facts that we seem to know, he was not supposed to have access to a gun".

I've always been sympathetic to the idea of expanding background checks to private sales, but such checks are only as good as the information they're based on.

"He should have been on a list to not get a gun". He later also faced animal cruelty charges for beating a dog.

Kelley gunned down 26 people Sunday inside First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, authorities said. She was not at the church Sunday. Investigators said there was a "domestic situation going on" between the suspect and his in-laws, and Kelley's grandmother-in-law was among the people he gunned down at the church, CNN reports. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who said he was writing legislation that would "prevent anyone convicted of domestic violence" from purchasing a firearm.

He admitted striking his wife, choking her, kicking her and pulling her hair, and striking his stepson on the head and body with a force "likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm", according to military documents. In February 2014, sheriff's deputies were called to Kelley's parents' house in Comal County, Texas, to investigate a potential domestic violence case after Danielle complained to a friend of abuse. They're serious offenses like felony charges, known substance abuse, a dishonorable discharge from any branch of the armed services, a misdemeanor (or higher) domestic violence conviction and others. Asked why the senators made a decision to target only domestic violence convictions with their legislation, Heinrich said that it was politically possible in a polarized Congress.
