Two men are being hailed as heroes for pursuing the gunman suspected of killing at least 26 people at a Texas church.

Johnnie Langendorff told local media he had chased the gunman after seeing “two men exchanging gunfire”.

“The shooter… fled in his vehicle, the other gentleman came and said we need to pursue him,” he said.

The attack happened at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a small town in Wilson County.

At least 26 people, aged from five to 72, were killed and 20 others were wounded when the gunman opened fire during Sunday service.

Speaking to local TV station Ksat.com, Mr Langendorff said: “I pulled up to the intersection where the shooting happened. I saw two men exchanging gunfire, the other being [a] citizen of the community.

“He came to my vehicle in distress with his weapon. He explained very quickly what happened. He got into the truck and I knew that it was time to go.”

  1. Islam can help establish sanctity of life especially the verse:

    Every human life is precious and sacred; saving a life is as if one has saved the whole of humanity. (Al Quran 5:32/33)

    Unfortunately extremist Muslim do not see this peaceful verses from God, they blind, hatred toward others, they choose other verse to justify their acts to kill innocent people. Very sad and pity.
    Our prayer and thought to all the victims family.

    • Somi is ‘stuck up’ with ‘extremist Muslims’. Looking at all so-called ‘Islamic Extremists’ we always find that they do not have ANY knowledge of Islam. The same thing with the recent killer of New Jersey. They would not know the so-called violent Hadiths that you keep quoting. The actual ‘extremist Muslims’ are very small in numbers (not in ‘millions’).
