Via AP: A man pulled out a shotgun at a Texas church service and fired on worshippers Sunday, killing two people before he was shot to death by congregants who fired back, police said.

Authorities at a Sunday evening news conference praised the two congregants who opened fire as part of a volunteer security team at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement. It was unclear if the two people who were killed were the two who shot at the gunman.

“This team responded quickly and within six seconds, the shooting was over. Two of the parishioners who were volunteers of the security force drew their weapons and took out the killer immediately, saving untold number of lives,” said Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who also hailed the state’s gun laws.

Britt Farmer, senior minister of the church, said, “We lost two great men today, but it could have been a lot worse.”

Authorities said there were more than 240 parishioners in the West Freeway Church at the time of the shooting.

  1. A few years ago, I suggested I was willing to act in such a circumstance around CHRISTmas time. Got uncertain looks instead of a clear answer. Guess that kind of violence is still a few feet away from Abilene to sink in totally. I very much appreciate PoT’s strong, vocal support of our 2nd Amendment rights. ew yes, I’m way! behind, I know.
