The second victim in Sunday’s deadly shooting at a Texas church has been identified as a 67-year-old sales manager from a Fort Worth suburb, KTVT reported.
Richard White, 67, of River Oaks, and Anton “Tony” Wallace, 64, were both shot dead when a gunman opened fire at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement outside of Fort Worth.
White was a sales manager at Thankheads Inc., a manufacturing company, according to his Facebook page.
On Facebook Monday, his daughter-in-law expressed the family’s pain and called him “a true hero.”
“You were taken from us yesterday in a senseless act of violence,” Misty York White wrote. “You stood up against evil and sacrificed your life. Many lives were saved because of your actions.”
“As we sit and watch information continue to unfold about the attack, we are stunned, confused and pained,” she wrote. “The death, the police, the news media make this feel like a war zone.”
Authorities have identified the gunman as Keith Thomas Kinnunen, 43, but have not determined a motive. Jack Wilson, a former reserve deputy sheriff running for local office, is credited with gunning down Kinnunen in the church after he shot White and Wallace.
