Retired Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Robert Corrigan and his wife Shani were shot and killed when former airman Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire Nov. 5 at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. They were just two of the 26 parishioners murdered and 20 others wounded by Kelley before he died of a gunshot in a high-speed chase with two bystanders. But Corrigan, 51, wasn’t just another innocent victim caught in the deadliest mass shooting in state history; he was everything that Kelly was not.
Former airman Devin Patrick Kelley killed 26 people and wounded 20 others when he opened fire at the First Baptist Church of Sunderland Springs, Texas on the morning of Nov. 5 — and he might have escaped had it not been for the efforts of two complete strangers.
