Two people are dead, and one person is in critical condition after Sunday’s shooting at a White Settlement church. Officials pronounced one dead at the scene, one died on the way to the hospital. The gunman was then killed after being shot by two church members. The church’s preacher is Britt Farmer, a Longview-native and Spring Hill alum and did not suffer any injuries.
According to White Settlement Police Chief JP Bevering “The threat was stopped thanks to the quick and heroic actions of those safety members inside the church.”
The two victims were taken to the hospital but soon died from their injuries. Their names have not yet been officially released but church members identified the two men to CBS News as Tony Wallace and Richard White.
The shooting was seen by people watching the church’s live stream on the internet.
