A US security source revealed that the Texas church massacre victim was in great disagreement with his mother-in-law, who is hesitant about the same church and has already sent her textual threats to kill her.
A security official said on Monday that the massacre committed by Devin Patrick Kelly "was not a racist or a religious attack."
"It was a family situation related to his wife's parents."
He explained that the former military Hama in the US Air Force, was going to that church and that he sent "letters of threat" before the implementation of his aggression.
The 26-year-old Kelly fired a semiautomatic rifle at worshipers in a church in the village of Sutherland Springs, which has a population of no more than 400 people, before fleeing and then finding him in his car by shooting himself.
It has killed and wounded dozens.
Earlier, the Pentagon admitted that a mistake in its administration had caused the Texas massacre killer to obtain the weapon of his crime.
According to the ministry, the former Air Force member was able to purchase his firearm because of a mistake he made by not including his name in the record of the criminal record after he was found guilty of assaulting his wife and child.
"Preliminary information shows that Kelly's domestic violence crime was not included in the National Criminal Information Center (NICC) record," Air Force spokeswoman Anne Stephanik said.
An investigation had been opened to determine the reasons for the error and to ensure that no other convicted names had been included in the record.
Every year, there are about 33,000 deaths related to firearms in the United States, including 22,000 suicides, according to a recent study.
In every major shooting incident, the controversy over the seizure of firearms, a thorny issue in a country where the possession of arms is almost sacrosanct.
