Neighbors of Texas shooting suspect say they heard intense gunfire in recent days

Neighbors of Devin Patrick Kelley, the 26-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing at least 26 people in a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church on Sunday, say over the past few days, they heard bursts of gunfire from the direction of his home.

It was "really loud," Ryan Albers, who lived across the street from the property listed as belonging to Kelley in New Braunfels, told The Associated Press. "At first I thought someone was blasting. It was someone using automatic weapon fire." Another neighbor, who asked his name not be used, said he heard gunfire but wasn't certain that it came from Kelley's residence.
