The West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, a suburb of Fort Worth, was livestreaming their service to YouTube when the shooting, which took the lives of two parishioners. The unidentified killer, wearing a large coat and black hat, entered the church from the rear and sat alone in a pew, then opened fire, and was himself shot by an armed congregant. Two parishioners, including a former FBI agent working security, fired on the gunman and killed him. A representative from the FBI did not identify the shooter, but said he was “relatively transient with roots to this area” and had been arrested multiple times in different municipalities.”
Update: The shooter has been identified as Keith Kinnunen, 43, who was a convicted felon, making it illegal for him to own a firearm in Texas, but he ignored the law when he attacked the churchgoers. He had a criminal record that included charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in 2009, possession of an illegal weapon in 2016 and there was a warrant for his arrest in Oklahoma for aggravated assault in 2016.
A black-clad man with a rifle stashed under his coat gunned down two people in a Texas church Sunday before being slain by parishioners in a caught-on-tape shootout.
The bloodshed erupted in the middle of service at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, a suburb of Fort Worth, around 10:50 a.m., authorities said.
Stunning footage of the service — which was being livestreamed by the Christian church on YouTube — shows the killer in a large coat, black hat and apparently long bushy black beard enter the church from the rear and shake the hand of a woman before sitting alone in a pew along the left side.
He soon gets up and approaches a man standing by the wall.
As the unsuspecting congregation, including many older couples, concentrate on their missal books, the gunman appears to ask the man a question.
The man responds by pointing to his right, where another guy is sitting along the wall.
The man who was sitting gets up and appears to be pulling something out from the back of his waistband when the killer opens fire, shooting him and causing him to fall to the ground.
Meanwhile, several other male worshippers whip out their own firearms and move toward the shooter as he remains down. The state recently passed a law allowing licensed gun-holders to carry weapons in church.
Oxford has partnered with pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca in order to produce billions of doses. That means that, even though the vaccine is of little value, the government will purchase the billion doses and force everyone to accept them.
Over 700 looters were arrested, but more than 400 were immediately released without bail. It appears that city and state leaders have ordered police to stand down to encourage as much violence and destruction as possible to eventually justify martial law, which is the end game for ending America as a free nation.
In cities around the US, pallets of bricks have been delivered to riot locations. There is no construction in these areas, so it is logical to conclude that they are being provided for rioters to break windows. This is further proof of a well funded organized operation. These are not mere “protesters”.
Calling for stronger police and/or military response is exactly what the enemies of America want. Rather than calling for martial law, why don’t commentators call for putting the organizers of these riots into prison NOW? Can’t people see that they are professionals, not protesters?
Leftist college professors take to the media and Twitter accounts to voice their opinions, mostly sympathetic to rioters. They are using social media to promote and justify violence. The presidents and trustees of these universities have not objected to their rhetoric of hatred and violence.
This raises the question of whether police will have the power to forcibly enter a home and remove a lover from another address. This COVID Theater would be hilarious if it didn’t tragically affect so many lives.
Her arrest came as 47 NYPD vehicles were set on fire and damaged in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Rioters also were attacking police. An estimated 33 police officers were injured in the city. De Blasio’s daughter’s arrest came as he was urging protesters to return to their homes.
Trump has ordered the Pentagon to prepare the US military to deploy domestically inside the US. As the violence escalates, people will welcome the military. Minnesota is using ‘contact tracing’ techniques to track rioters – and then everybody.
Every state has plans for contact tracing. In Washington state, where contact tracing is said to be voluntary, non-compliant individuals may be sent to prison and fined up to $2,000 per day for non-compliance.
The NYPD said that several officers sustained injuries, including one who was struck in the head with a garbage can and another who was punched in the face. Protesters shut down the street around police headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

Donnelly claimed the posts, including fantasies of hurting women, were jokes meant for his friends. He has no criminal record, and his lawyer described the weapons seizure as an intrusion on both his First Amendment and Second Amendment rights.
Republican Colorado State Representative Patrick Neville, who survived the Columbine gun attack in 1999, is introducing legislation to allow teachers to carry guns in order to thwart school shootings. He identifies “gun-free zones” as the common denominator in mass shootings. He has introduced this legislation every year since 2014, and is hoping that this time it will pass.
Four Rhode Island towns, Burrillville, Hopkinton, West Greenwich, and Foster, declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. Two months ago, a similar policy was passed in 25 of New Mexico’s 33 counties as they also adopted Second Amendment Sanctuary status.
