Two men who pursued gunman attend shooting vigil
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas - The two men who pursued the gunman after the Texas church shooting visited a vigil together and prayed with community members mourning the 26 people killed in the attack.
Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff arrived at the vigil with relatives Monday night. They locked arms in a circle and bowed their heads in extended prayer. Many wept openly, including Willeford, who could be seen wiping away tears streaming down his chin.
As the pastor shouted, "Jesus, this is your town," the prayer broke up and the two men left.
Willeford ran from his home with his rifle and confronted the gunman, Devin Kelley, outside the church Sunday. Authorities have said two of the bullets fired by Willeford hit Kelley in the leg and torso. The gunman fled in his vehicle.
Johnnie Langendorff was driving by the church when Willeford flagged him down and they pursued the gunman in Langendorff's truck. Kelley eventually crashed and was found dead in his vehicle.
