The Air Force failed to notify the FBI six times of the man who shot and killed 26 people in a Texas church last year, allowing him to buy a gun when he should not have been able to, according to an inspector general report.

There were four times when the Air Force should have submitted to the FBI the fingerprints of Devin Patrick Kelley, who was convicted in a court-martial of assault. The Air Force also should have submitted a report to the FBI on two occasions on Kelley’s final disposition.

The article goes on to state the following:

“If Kelley’s fingerprints were submitted to the FBI, he would have been prohibited from purchasing a firearm from a licensed firearms dealer,” the Pentagon inspector general said in a 131-page report released Friday.

“Because his fingerprints were not submitted to the FBI [Criminal Justice Information Services] Division, Kelley was able to purchase firearms, which he used to kill 26 people at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on November 5, 2017.”
