Texas shooting: Parishioner who gunned down shooter says he 'killed an evil' not a human

Posted by NTV Houston on Monday, December 30, 2019

A parishioner who shot a gunman at a church in White Settlement, Texas, said the gunman had raised suspicions from the moment he entered the church building. Jack Wilson, a local parishioner and a former reserve deputy for the Hood County Sheriff’s Office, has been hailed as a hero after he gunned down the shooter who opened fire inside the West Freeway Church of Christ on Sunday (December 30).

“I don’t feel like I killed a human, I killed an evil ,” Wilson told reporters on Monday (December 30) at his gun range where he trains other parishioners to shoot weapons.

The shooter, who has been identified as Keith Thomas Kinnunen of River Oaks, Texas, shot and fatally wounded two other parishioners present at the service before Wilson killed him with a single shot. 

A live video caught the moment when the gunman stood next to the pews wearing a dark hood and started firing a shotgun before members of the church’s volunteer security team returned fire. 

The church is located in a suburb northwest of Fort Worth.

The gunman’s two victims were identified as Anton Wallace, 64, of Fort Worth and Richard White, 67, also of River Oaks, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.
