Users on Twitter supposed that if weren't for the man who put down the shooter, there might have been many more victims in the church.
The shooting occurred around 10 p.m. local time at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement and left two people dead, including the shooter, and one person critically injured.
The gunman died right at the scene, while another person could not survive their injuries en route to the hospital.
The motives of the shooter remain unknown so far.
Gun laws in Texas permit carrying guns in churches, synagogues and other places of worship so long as it is not specifically prohibited by those places with signage.
