At least two people were killed, one in critical condition after a church shooting in White Settlement, Texas on Sunday. The shooting occurred at the Church of Christ while services were being live streamed on YouTube.
The shooter is believed to be among the three people shot, Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Mike Drivdahl said, CBS DFW reports. Police responded to the scene at about 9:57 a.m. after reports of gunfire and people wounded.
Let it sink in that in 2019, there is still a town in America called White Settlement. The shooting comes as five people were stabbed in a rabbi’s home in upstate New York yesterday. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is busy attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Twitter reacts after church shooting in White Settlement Texas, while service was live-streamed:
A reminder that armed guards – aka, good guys with guns – are highly trained and required to have background checks before taking a gun into public places. Those same requirements are not in place for the average armed Texas citizen. #txlege

White Settlement is a real town name. It’s in the DFW area but I never been bc of the name. Apparently they have a hard time attracting business bc of said name and yet I’m 2005 when they proposed changing it, they OVERWHELMINGLY voted to keep it the same. pic.twitter.com/6SYhVRtayk

Maybe a mass shooting in a church which is in a town literally named "White Settlement" will finally get the Republicans' attention…?
