Multiple People Shot in Texas Church

Emergency services were called to West Freeway Church of Christ, just outside of Fort Worth, TX, on Sunday in response to a shooting that took place during a service.

Two people have been reported dead after a shooter fired off a number of shots inside the church. WFAA reporter Jason Whitely and CNN have reported that a third person is in critical condition after the attack. It is currently unclear if the shooter is alive or dead.

Reports say that the situation began around 11:30 A.M. local time when churchgoers ducked under their seats after a gunman drew his weapon and shot two people in the auditorium. The gunman was then shot by another person inside the church.

UPDATE: 3:05 p.m. ET: Governor Greg Abbott has offered a sympathetic statement to the victims:

A spokesperson for MedStar Hospital has also confirmed that the shooter is dead.
