A gunman opened fire on church members in White Settlement, Texas.

White Settlement, TX - A gunman opened fire at a church Sunday morning before being shot by an armed church member.

The incident happened at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement outside of Fort Worth at around 11:30 a.m., according to KIRO.

KTVT reports that the gunman walked up to a server during communion and started shooting people. That's when an armed church member shot the suspect. UPDATE: Two armed church members fatally shot the suspect.

The shooting was captured on the church's service livestream, which has since been taken down.

WFAA reports that the video showed multiple armed church members rushing the shooter after the attack.

Two people were killed in the attack and one person critically wounded. The gunman is one of the two who were fatally short.

Fort Worth spokesperson Mike Drivdahl released a statement which said, “When White Settlement PD and White Settlement Fire Department arrived on scene, they did find a total of three patients that have been transported in critical condition. That includes who they do believe is the shooter, so that is a total of three, including the shooter, who have been transported.”

Sounds like the 2nd Amendment just served it's intended purpose, which is precisely why we need trained, responsible gun owners.

Also, of all the places to go do some dumb shit, he picked a CHURCH? In TEXAS?! God was watching, and God said, "Not today, Satan!"

Poor gunman thought he was assaulting a gun free zone. That town sounds like a place I might like to retire.

There were at least 4 members there who were carrying concealed. I love it.

Praise God you can defend yourselves. Praying for those families that lost loved ones.

So how many people would be dead if the gunman was in California or New York and there were no citizens armed to defend them?

White men are usually the ones who are so violently inclined to be disrespectful and so depraved as to commit violence and shootings in a church, synagogue, mosque or any other place of worship. White poster boy Dylan Roof proved that point well. (A point whites have tried to suppress and forget). If that kind of thing is truly a sin, then there's got to be more of them in hell than anyone else. Lol. I pray for the white folk of WHITE SETTLEMENT that they might get past this tragedy with the grace of God and not the guns they hold so dear.

Marxcy, HCD you have no problem starting a storm but, when it starts raining, you get mad. Everything I've heard from you two is just blaintently racist."white Settlementn not surprsed something like this happened there!" HCD has made it abondently clear you're atheist. I'm just guessing old Marxcy baby is athiest too! I've had God on my shoulder scince I was a kid, just didnt realize it. I stopped drinking completly after my 6 year commitment to my country! I was missed having my artery blown out of my neck by less then half a inch. I've always made the right decisions, always. Maybe you should take a hard look in the mirrior, is this who my wife likes? Does this make your kid(s) proud! Do they mirror your traits and the bull you maliciously Spread! Never have I saw statements really condemning the animals on our streets that are reeking habitual trouble, whites and blacks!..........cops, yea love giving them shit! Just a thought.....stop creating storms that you know are going to piss you off.........when the rain starts!

It was only three months ago that Texas repealed its law restricting carrying into houses of worship. Things could have gone done quite differently, had the church been a "gun-free" zone...

I worked with plenty of females I trusted to have my back in any event. I couldn’t work with a female who responded like that. If it is indeed due to the city administrators not backing up physical responses then I would pack my bags and lateral to a different jurisdiction that did have better support.
