A gunman identified as Devin Kelley walked into a rural church in a small town, shooting and killing 26 defenseless churchgoers Sunday, wounding 20 others.

As Kelley walked out of the church he was confronted by a local resident who had heard the gunfire, grabbed his own rifle and started firing at the Kelley, causing the killer to flee in his vehicle.

At that moment, the man who confronted Kelley got help from another local resident.

Johnnie Langendorff was driving past the church as the shooting happened. He says the armed local resident then asked to get in Langendorff's truck and the pair raced after the gunman together at 95 miles an hour.

"I pulled up on the intersection and I saw the shooter coming from the cars right outside the church that were parked. His vehicle was parked, door open, engine running."

"He and the neighbor across the street were both coming out about the same time, exchanging fire."

Langendorff said that after a brief chase, the gunman eventually lost control of his vehicle and crashed. He said the other man walked up to the vehicle with his gun drawn and the suspect did not move. He stayed there for at least five minutes, until police arrived.

"He hurt so many people, and he took so many people's lives. Why wouldn't you want to take him down?" Langendorff explained.

"I was strictly just acting on what's the right thing to do," he said.
