Senior Minister of the West Freeway Church of Christ responded to the tragic shooting in his Texas church on Sunday by thanking God that his congregants 'had the right' to defend themselves.

The gunman shot and killed two people before parishioners shot and killed him during services shortly before noon, according to authorities.

Minister Britt Farmer thanked Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and law enforcement for their prompt responses to the shooting:

“We lost two great men today, but it could have been a lot worse," he said.

"I’m thankful our government has allowed us the opportunity to protect ourselves.”

The shooting took place as worshippers were finishing communion.

The incident was initially captured on a live stream that was quickly taken down.

Two church members were killed before congregants shot the culprit.

Reports also indicate that at least two of the church members were responsible for firing the shots that killed the shooter.

Texas DPS Director Jeoff Williams praised the armed congregants saying they had saved everyone else in that building.

“The citizens who were inside that church undoubtedly saved 242 other parishioners, and that might get swept aside,” he said.

“It was miraculous. The true heroes in all this are the people who were sitting in those pews today and responded, the immediate responders … it was truly heroic.”

Gov. Greg Abbott has released a statement on the incident.

“Our hearts go out to the victims and families of those killed in the evil act of violence that occurred at the West Freeway Church of Christ.

Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life.”

“Today, evil walked boldly among us,” Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn said.

“But let me remind you, good people raised up and stopped it before it got worse.”
