A mass shooter was swiftly shot in the head after shooting two innocent churchgoers at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas.

From KGET, "Three dead, including gunman, one in critical condition in shooting at Texas church":
A gunman killed two people before parishioners shot and killed him at a church near Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday, authorities said.

J.P. Bevering, police chief of White Settlement, in Tarrant County, said the man opened fire at West Freeway Church of Christ during services shortly before noon. Worshipers returned fire, killing the gunman, Bevering said.

One person was pronounced dead shortly after the shooting. Another parishioner who was in critical condition later died, authorities said.
Graphic video of the attack was captured on the church's live stream:

This video censors the two people who were shot (one appeared to have been reaching for a weapon but was hesitant to shoot the suspect before he fired):

Slowed-down, edited footage shows seven parishioners pulled guns either during or immediately after the shooting.

The Dallas Morning News reported that "two members who are part of the church's security team opened fire on the gunman."

It looks as though the older man on the left hit the shooter with a direct head shot.

"Matthew DeSarno, the FBI agent in charge of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, didn't identify the shooter, but said he was 'relatively transient with roots to this area' and had been arrested multiple times in different municipalities," CNN reports.

Fortunately, Texas Republicans recently passed a law allowing law-abiding citizens to carry guns into places of worship.

Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement offering his condolences to the victims and praising the Christians who "acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life."

"Our hearts go out to the victims and families of those killed in the evil act of violence that occurred at the West Freeway Church of Christ," Abbott said. "Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life. Cecilia and I ask all Texans to join us in praying for the White Settlement community and for all those affected by this horrible tragedy."

"We lost two great men today, but it could have been a lot worse," West Freeway Church of Christ Senior Minister Britt Farmer said Sunday evening. "I'm thankful our government has allowed us the opportunity to protect ourselves."
