RAW VIDEO: Livestream Captures Deadly Shooting at White Settlement, Texas Church
December 29, 2019

Image

Two people are dead and one is in critical condition following a shooting inside a Church in White Settlement, Texas Sunday morning. The shooter was shot dead by a churchgoer who is the head of security.

The gunfire rang out around 11:30 a.m. local time at the West Freeway Church of Christ–1900 South Las Vegas Trail.

Police and EMS responded to the active shooting scene and located at least three victims.
The church was live streaming the service on YouTube at the time of the attack. In the video below, you can see the gunman open fire before he is shot by armed security.

“Everything is under control. Our security team did everything they needed to do,” a Church leader said. “We had a gentleman that came in armed to do harm.”

BREAKING: West Freeway Church of Christ shooter identified as 43-year-old Keith Thomas Kinnunen

He had prior arrests for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in 2009 and theft of property in 2013, as well as illegal weapon possession

UPDATE:
The second victim has succumbed to his injuries.

Quote:
A parishioner named Jack Wilson — who volunteers for the church’s armed security team and trained others in the church to use firearms to protect the congregations — confronted Kinnunen almost immediately, shooting and killing him, according to the Associated Press. Two parishioners, including one who volunteered on the security team, were also killed during the shooting

Anton Wallace, 64, of Fort Worth and Richard White, 67 of River Oaks were identified as the victims, the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed to TIME. DPS said that they both died at a local hospital.

It seems Global News changed the tweet?

Quote:
Editor’s Note: The previous story and headline by Reuters read that the gunman owned a shooting range and gave lessons, which was incorrect. In fact, the man who took down the gunman was the one who was a firearms instructor. The incorrect Reuters story has been replaced with a story by The Associated Press.

I searched the Reuters story.. and it's "withdrawn"

Story on assailant in Texas church training worshippers is withdrawn

(Reuters) - The story of the assailant who shot people in a Texas church is wrong and is being withdrawn. A new version of the story will be published shortly. The parishioner who shot the gunman trained worshippers on a shooting range; it was not the assailant who trained parishioners.
