Texas Church Shooter Stopped By Armed Citizen
During Sunday morning mass this morning at West Freeway Church of Christ, in White Settlement, Texas, a man walked in with a shotgun and opened fire on its parishioners. Two people are reported dead and one injured.

What stopped him from shooting anyone else? A good guy with a gun. Multiple reports state that numerous people drew their own firearms and one man shot the suspect.

There's a video at this link: https://twitter.com/bnonews/status/1211387668149473281?s=21

It went down fast. One shot stop for the good guy. Someone on another forum with better eyes than mine said there were 4 other guns drawn by parishioners.

National news is reporting the shooter was stopped by "Church Security" not by armed citizens (parishioners).

Looks like the shooter had a short shotgun. Look for proposals for those to be banned next.

The unedited video (Warning, Graphic!) Watch this unedited version of the of the attempted mass murder. (Warning! Graphic!) See if you can pick out things that could have been done differently to avoid being killed by the mass murderer. The second armed individual sure did make the first shot count! It surprises me how few of the unarmed individuals got out and ran. Run or Fight! Don't wait around to get shot

Interviews with the sheepdog that ended this evil are absolutely brilliant.
