UPDATE: Three shot, two fatally, during White Settlement church service
Around 11AM this morning, multiple emergency responders were called to the scene of a shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ in the 1900 block of S. Las Vegas Trail in White Settlement.
White Settlement Police and Fire along with Fort Worth Police, Fire, and MedStar EMS all responded with multiple units.
Multiple people were injured. MedStar confirms three people were shot, two fatally. One of those shot is the shooter.
According to a live video from the Church’s YouTube page, the shooting began just after an offering or communion had been passed. An individual sitting in the back of the sanctuary got up and spoke to another person in the back of the room, pulled out a weapon, and fired at least two shots. At that time, another armed person (possibly a security officer) drew his weapon and shot the shooter.
The ATF is on scene to assist with the investigation. A motive has not been released at this time.
Additional details will be released by officials in the coming hours. Stay tuned for updates.
