Jack Wilson, Texas Church Shooting Hero

Jack Wilson Texas Church Shooting Hero West Freeway Church of Christ

Jack Wilson, the security volunteer who quickly shot and killed the Texas church shooter at West Freeway Church of Christ, likely saving many lives, is a former reserve deputy sheriff who was the long-time owner of a firearms training academy.

“I don’t feel like I killed an individual. I killed evil,” Wilson told reporters, according to Fox4 News. “I don’t see myself as a hero. I see myself as doing what needed to be done to take out the evil threat.” He fired a single shot. It was a head shot, and he says it was his round that killed the shooter. “I only fired one round. It was the only shot I had, which was a head shot.”

The gunman, now named as Keith Thomas Kinnunen, died at the scene after being shot; Wilson reacted within seconds and is being called a hero for his quick-thinking response.

“This man confronted an evil killer in a Texas church,” wrote Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Twitter. “He could have been killed in a split second. Instead he saved the lives of hundreds. Putting your life on the line for others is the ultimate valor. Texas is grateful for his heroism.”
