Two people killed, one injured at Texas church shooting
Two people have been reportedly killed while another person was injured in a shooting at a church in Texas on Sunday.
The incident happened around 9:57 a.m. at the West Freeway Church of Christ, which is located in the city of White Settlement, just outside of Fort Worth.
“It’s all very tragic,” Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Mike Drivdahl told reporters.
MedStar, the ambulance service provider to Fort Worth and other cities in north Texas, said that two people were killed in the shooting while another person was in critical condition.
MedStar added that the victims ranged in age from 30 to 60 years old. MedStar Mobile Healthcare spokeswoman Macara Trusty told the Associated Press that one person died at the church in White Settlement, about 8 miles west of Fort Worth and the other died en route to the hospital.
“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 was apparently live streaming the service when the shooting took place.
