WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas (AP) – A man who trained others in his Texas church to use firearms to protect the congregation fatally shot a gunman seconds after he opened fire during a service. Jack Wilson fired a single shot, quickly ending the attack that killed two people at the West Freeway Church of Christáin the Fort Worth-area town of White Settlement. More than 240 congregants were in the church at the time. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton identified Wilson on Monday.
