Investigators seek to unlock Texas shooter’s cell phone

SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 7, 2017) (REUTERS) – Investigators in Texas said they are hoping to unlock the cellphone of Devin Kelley, the gunman in Sunday’s massacre at a church in rural southeastern Texas that has left at least 26 people dead.

Investigators were still probing a conflict between Kelley and his in-laws that appeared to have set off his rampage, though the Federal Bureau of Investigation thus far has been unable to crack into the man’s cell phone, officials said.

The dead ranged in age from 18 months to 77 years. Twenty others were wounded, with 10 still in critical condition on Tuesday, officials said.

Kelley died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his getaway vehicle, where authorities found two handguns, said Freeman Martin, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety.
