A WOMAN claims the Texas church massacre gunman was a racist who called her a “dirty Mexican” and threatened to kill her following a disagreement on Facebook over Donald Trump.
Nelly Rodriguez said she had made a comment on a post about the US President on a friend’s Facebook page when Devin Kelley, who killed 26 churchgoers and injured 20 others on Sunday, became racially abusive and threatening.
Facebook Nelly Rodriguez claims that Devin Kelley told her Trump was going to send her “back to Mexico” before threatening to kill her
She says he then sent her a private message saying he was going to “find” and “kill” her – and a screen grab showing that he had found her address on the internet.
Deranged Kelley also called Nelly a “ghetto dirty Mexican” and said Trump would send her “back to Mexico”.
He then threatened some of her friends and family members.
Nelly, 35, from San Marcos, Texas, said she did not go to the police because she thought he was a “typical radical racist Trump lover” but wishes she had after finding out about Sunday’s shooting.
Replying to a post about the killer on a pal’s Facebook page, she wrote: “This is the muther f***** [sic] i got into it with on a post u had made about trumps a**.
“He was talking s*** to me, saying i was a ghetto dirty mexican, and bunch of bulls*** about trump sending me back to mexico.

Nelly claims she has deleted the 26-year-old’s threatening messaged but one of her cousins who still has copies of the abusive messages her sent her.
She added on Facebook: “I deleted the message he sent me last yr [sic], but my cousin pat still has the messages he sent her in her messenger.
“He was f****** crazy, and now we both like f*** maybe we should have informed the police back then of the threats he was making to us, but we just thought he was another typical radical racist trump lover wanting to f*** with us.”
Facebook Nelly Rodriguez said she wishes she had told the police about the incident
Kelley, a former member of the US Air Force, burst into the church in Sutherland Springs on Sunday while a service was taking place and opened fire on the congregation.
The gunman was dressed in black, tactical-type gear and wearing a ballistic vest when he entered the church during the late morning service.
It was later revealed that the mass killer was a “depressed gun nut” who once beat his baby stepson so hard it broke his skull – an act which saw him kicked out of the Air Force.
He also had a row with his mother-in-law Michelle Shields before he burst into the First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, Texas, and opened fire on innocent worshippers.

Police revealed that Kelley had “expressed anger” towards Michelle Shields, the mother of his second wife Danielle, and sent her “threatening texts” right before the massacre.
Michelle wasn’t at the church on Sunday, but her mum – Danielle’s grandmother – Lula Woicinski White – was shot dead by Kelley.
His victims also included eight members of the same family – including an eight-month-pregnant mum and her three kids.
Locals have described how Kelley was stopped by two brave men who fatally wounded the “deranged” killer before running his getaway car off the road.
US President Donald Trump has described the 26-year-old killer as “deranged” saying a the shooting was a “mental health problem at the highest level”, but not a “gun situation”.
