‘He had a Columbine feel to him’: Former classmates recall Texas shooting suspect Devin Kelley


‘You know that kid that wears a trench coat to school? He was kinda like that,’ a former classmate says

As authorities attempt to piece together a profile of the suspect in the mass shooting that killed 26 people in Sutherland Springs, Texas this week, former classmates have recalled him as a drifter, a loner, and in some cases, a source of fear.

Neighbours at Kelley’s parent’s home, where suspect Devin Patrick Kelley lived in a barn behind the tree-lined, 28-acre property, said they had barely seen him. Co-workers at the Summit Vacation Resort, where he worked as a security guard, described him as hardworking, if a bit unfriendly.

But one former classmate at New Braunfels High School said Kelley stood out for having “a Columbine feel to him” – a reference to the 1999 school shooting that killed 13, that, in the wake of the Texas shooting no longer appears on the list of the top 10 mass shootings in America.

“You know that kid that wears a trench coat to school? He was kinda like that,” the classmate, who asked to be identified only by his first name, Ryan, told The Independent.
