Two people are dead after a gunman opened fire Sunday at a church near Fort Worth, Texas, officials said. One victim died at the scene and another died en route to the hospital, MedStar told CBS News. A third person is in critical condition.
The gunfire began just before 10 a.m. at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, a city outside Fort Worth. Inside, paramedics found three men with gunshot wounds, according to Macara Trusty, spokesperson for local ambulance service MedStar.
A witness told CBS Dallas / Fort Worth the gunman shot someone with a shotgun during communion and that he was then taken down by another church member.
“It was the most scariest thing. You feel like your life is flashing before you. I was so worried about my little one,” Isabel Arreola said.
The church called West Freeway Church of Christ is located in White Settlement, in suburban Tarrant County.
The church live-streams its services on YouTube, and Sunday’s shooting was captured. The video has since been taken offline, but it reportedly showed an armed man who appeared to be a security guard responding after the initial shots were fired.
