A gunman opened fire in a Texas church on Sunday, killing two people and injuring others before two armed security guards shot and killed him at the scene.

The shooting occurred at the West Freeway Church of Christ near Fort Worth, in an area called “White Settlement.”

From Fox News:

“It’s all very tragic,” Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Mike Drivdahl told reporters.

During a news conference later Sunday, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick lauded the quick reactions of the church’s “well-trained” security team, calling their heroism “unparalleled.”

He said, “This team responded quickly and within six seconds, the shooting was over.”

He noted that the security team’s quick response saved an “untold number of lives.”

The victims ranged in age from 30 to 60 years old, according to MedStar, the ambulance service provider to Fort Worth and other cities in North Texas.

A witness to the shooting told KTVT the gunman walked up to a server with a shotgun during communion and opened fire before congregants inside the church took him down.
