The man who stopped a shooting at a Texas church on Sunday says that he was in a position that he hopes “no one would have to be in, but evil exists” and he had to take action.
Jack Wilson, who reportedly volunteers as head of security at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, shared on Facebook about the incident:
"The events at West Freeway Church of Christ put me in a position that I would hope no one would have to be in, but evil exists and I had to take out an active shooter in church," he wrote. "I’m thankful to GOD that I have been blessed with the ability and desire to serve him in the role of head of security at the church."
"I am very sad in the loss of two dear friends and brothers in CHRIST, but evil does exist in this world and I and other members are not going to allow evil to succeed," Wilson continued. "Please pray for all the members and their families in this time. Thank you for your prayers and understanding."
He shared his thoughts on his campaign page. He is reportedly running for Hood County Commissioner for Precinct 3.
Video shows the gunman – who still has not been identified – open fire in the church. He shot and killed two people. Wilson reportedly shot the gunman in the head less than six seconds after the gunman had opened fire.
Fox News reports that Wilson said the security team had “some concerns” about the gunman and that the cameras were “turned on him” to keep an eye on him.
