The man who stopped a Texas church shooting warned that every American should “be prepared to protect yourself” in a video released Sunday.

Jack Wilson, who is an armed security guard at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, spoke out about the Dec. 29, 2019, shooting in an exclusive interview with student activist group Turning Point USA.

Wilson spent 30 years in the “defense world,” six years in Texas Army National Guard, and taught people how to shoot for 21 years at his own business, he said. He has a message for his fellow Americans: “There is evil in the world. Be prepared to protect yourself.”

When the shooter entered the church, Wilson said he quickly noticed the individual’s wig and fake beard. He said he observed the shooter at length and had gone into the audiovisual room at the church to put one of the cameras specifically on the shooter.


The shooter got up and briefly spoke to someone — and then pulled out his shotgun.

“By that time, Richard and I were both pulling our firearms out,” Wilson said, referring to fellow congregant and security guard Rich White, whom the shooter killed. “Richard told him, ‘Drop the gun, drop the gun.’ He shot Richard immediately. He turned and shot Tony Wallace.”

“I had people in front of me that prevented me from taking a body shot or torso shot,” the church security guard added. “The only shot I had was the headshot.”

Wilson said he took the headshot, and the shooter went down.
