WASHINGTON - The Air Force says federal privacy laws prohibit it from commenting on a news report that the gunman who attacked worshippers at a Texas church had escaped from a mental health facility in 2012 when he was an airman.
  
Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek cited privacy regulations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, which she said apply even though the gunman, Devin P. Kelley died in Sunday's violence in Texas.
  
The report by KPRC-TV in Houston cited an El Paso Police Department report.
  
The TV station also reported that Kelley had made death threats against superior officers. Stefanek said the Air Force was looking into that report.
