    I hope it was the shooter among the dead. I was wondering why there is not more about this on today's news.

    It just happened this afternoon and the other story I read indicated that one of the deceased is, in fact the perp. Though I doubt that this will get much positive coverage for us.

    Dec. 29 (UPI) — Two people were slain and another is in critical condition after a shooting during a service at a Christian church in a suburb in Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday morning.

    https://www.breitbart.com/2nd-amendm...pected-gunman/

    The shooting occurred at the West Freeway Church in White Settlement, The Dallas Morning News reported. White Settlement is a city in Tarrant County with a population of 16,116 at the 2010 census

    One of the victims is believed to be the suspect.

    MedStar spokeswoman Macara Trusty confirmed that one person died at the scene of the shooting and one person died en route to a hospital. The third person was listed in critical condition.

    Fort Worth Fire Department sent out an “active threat” assignment about 11:30 a.m. to assist White Settlement police and fire

    The gunman walked up to a server during communion with a shotgun and then opened fire, Isabel Arreola told KTVT-TV.

    Another church member shot the suspect, according to the witness.

    “It was the most scariest thing. You feel like your life is flashing before you. I was so worried about my little one,” Arreola said.

    Sunday’s service was live streamed on YouTube but the video that showed the shooting has since been made private.

    Two years ago, Devin Kellen opened fire inside another Texas church killing 26 people and wounding more than 20 others before he shot himself to death. It occurred at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, which is 280 miles south of Fort Worth.

    A friend who lives in Texas. Just msg'd me the church's video of the shooting.
    Notice how many people pulled out their own weapons in defense.

    One news report said the criminal had a shotgun. Unknown. If anyone can find the video I would be very interested in reviewing it.

    Regardless, the Church's security team did a damned good job, and put him down quickly.
