ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday (November 7) the Texas shooting could have been far worse if the man who shot the shooter was himself not armed. Devin Kelley, the gunman in Sunday's (November 5) shooting at a church in rural southeastern Texas, killed 26 people, including the unborn child of a pregnant woman who died. Kelley was shot twice - in the leg and torso - by another man, Stephen Willeford, who lived nearby and confronted Kelley with his own rifle as the gunman emerged from the church.
