WATCH: North Texas Church Livestream Catches Moment Armed Gunman Opens Fire

WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — A North Texas church's livestream caught the moment an armed gunman opened fire, killing one person and critically injuring another Sunday morning.

Just before 11 a.m. Dec. 29, police responded to a shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ on Las Vegas Trail, where the service was being live streamed on their website.

In the video, the gunman walked up to a server during communion with a shotgun, shot two people, then turned around and aimed at the pastor but missed as he was shot in action by a church security team member.

Officials confirmed at a news conference Sunday afternoon that the suspect was one of the two people killed. His identity has not yet been released.
