A volunteer security guard who killed a gunman inside a Texas church is being hailed as a hero. But Jack Wilson said he was just doing what he was “trained to do.”
“You train, but you hope you never have to go to that extreme. But if you do, your training will kick in, and that was evident yesterday,” Wilson said.
The gunman, who was identified as Keith Thomas Kinnunen, 43, opened fire Sunday in the West Freeway Church of Christ, killing two people. Wilson said in an interview Monday that he knew something was wrong the moment Kinnunen walked into the church.
“He was wearing a wig and a fake beard and a toboggan on his head,” Wilson said.
