Two Dead, One Injured in Texas Church Shooting
Two people are dead and one is injured after a man opened fire inside a Texas church Sunday morning.
KXAS-TV reports that the shooting happened shortly before 11 AM at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement. During service, a man brandished a long gun and fired at two people before a parishioner with a handgun fired at him. One of the men shot by the gunman and the gunman himself were fatally injured. The other shooting victim is in critical condition.
The church was livestreaming video of services when the shooting occurred, and the footage has been making its way around the web. I have chosen not to publish it here, but it has been shared by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The footage is graphic in nature.
KTVT-TV shared footage of a press conference in which police confirmed that Texas DPS, FBI, and the Fort Worth Police Department are working to determine the shooter's motive. The gunman's identity had not been released Sunday afternoon.
