A shooter opened fire and killed two people at a Texas church this afternoon, but no one expected someone else to be packing that would critically wound the gunman, ultimately protecting the parishioners.

The West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, a suburb about 15 minutes outside of Fort Worth, was the site of the shooting during the Sunday sermon. A live stream on the church’s website that caught the entire ordeal as it was happening, has since been taken down, but stills from the video captured both shooters as well as the ducking churchgoers.

According to confirmed reports, the gunman was in the church during the service, but stood up and began shooting during communion. As seen in the now-deleted video, the hooded shooter took aim at the crowd, but a security guard almost immediately returned fire.


At the time of this writing, the motive of the shooting remains unclear, but the shooter was taken into custody alive, so many questions may still be answered.
