The source told ABC News the camera angle did not show most of the pews, but the video did show Kelley walking up and down the main aisle at least three times, firing as he went.

Kelley went into every pew to unload rounds on the worshipers who were cowering on the ground, the source said.

Kelley did not appear to be in a rush as he executed people, including shooting some in the head, the source said.
