Two men, heroes in the eyes of most Texans, went after lone gunman Devin Patrick Kelley and tried to run him off the road.

We here at the Goldwater told you this morning that the first man, the driver, had been identified as <a href="http://thegoldwater.com/news/11211-PrayForTexas-Video-Hero-Driver-Recounts-Gunman-Chase"> Johnnie Langendorff </a>, 27 years old.

The identity of his passenger, who shot Devin Kelley, has now become known as well.

That hero is Mr Stephen Willeford, 55 years old, and according to his neighbours, an excellent shot.

Mr Willeford attended a different church and was alerted by his daughter who said ‘there was a man in body armor gunning down churchgoers during mass’. Mr Willeford immediately grabbed his gun and headed down to confront the gunman, Mr Kelley.

The local plumber has no military experience but according to neighbours is an excellent shot, and when he came face to face with Kelley, Mr Willeford was able to shoot in between his body armour, hitting him in his side.

At this point Mr Langendorff, who was en route towards his girlfriend, arrived on the scene and witnessed the exchange of fire.

Kelley then dropped his Ruger assault rifle and fled off in an SUV.

Mr Willeford then stopped Mr Langendorff and explained the situation to him. With the risk of their own lives, the two men pursued the shooter as 95mph speeds.

Mr Langendorff’s girlfriend, Miss Summer Caddell, explained in a Facebook post how the pair had 'jumped in my boyfriend's truck and they chased that sick b*d down in pursuit until the cops could catch up. He was able to run the shooter off of the road on 539!'
