One of the gunshop owners who sold firearms to Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley has spoken out and revealed that he passed a background test twice.

Kelley, 26, killed 26 people and injured 20 on Sunday when he opened fire at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. He later committed suicide.

After the deadly incident, investigators discovered that Kelley had bought four firearms in the four previous years, despite having a domestic abuse conviction on his record that should have precluded him from buying a gun.

But the Air Force revealed on Monday that an administrative error resulted in Kelley’s name never being added to the database gunshops use to screen prospective buyers.

In a Tuesday interview, Jeff Lepp, owner of Specialty Sports in Colorado Springs, Colorado, revealed that he sold Kelley two of his guns but says he passed a background check both times.

‘You never want to sell something to someone that will commit any form of crime, let alone a mass murder like this,’ Lepp told KENS5.

He says he wants to know what happened to cause the system to fail.
