  Texas gunman: a militant atheist who beat wife and child The former Air Force airman who shot dead 26 people in a Texas church had been jailed by the military for beating his wife and child, and had ranted against God and the church on his social media pages. Devin Patrick Kelley, a white 26-year-old who was dressed head-to-toe in black combat gear when he carried out the deadliest shooting in Texas history, appears to have killed himself after the attack. His church-going victims were aged between 18 months and 77 years.

Controversy has always been Marilyn Manson's stock in trade, but he went a bit far even for him in San Bernardino on Sunday night: On the day of yet another mass shooting -- Sunday's in Texas, where 26 people were killed -- he turned a fake gun on the crowd in a city that itself saw 14 people killed in a 2015 shooting.

Video footage shows Manson pointing the gun at the crowd from a wheelchair -- the concert was his first since his leg was shattered by a falling stage prop in September -- as he sings 'We Know Where You F--ing Live' while a stagehand in medical scrubs wheels him around the stage.

While the media uproar on Monday was considerable, Kelli Skye Fadroski, a reporter for the San Bernardino Sun, said the crowd's reaction was less extreme.

"Coming on the eve of a mass shooting at a church in Texas, Manson could have had a bit more tact, but it's Manson," she wrote. "He has always aimed for the shock value or to be provocative and though some that were in the crowd thought it was 'lame,' the stunt didn't seem to truly bother anyone else, especially with the handful of San Bernardino sheriffs standing on either side of the stage."
