In Texas, A Good Guy With A Gun Was Shot By Police


The 'good guy with a gun' at Faith City Mission was shot by police after he disarmed the would-be shooter.

On the same day that Nikolas Cruz walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida with an AR-15 rifle, a man in Amarillo, Texas walked into Faith City Mission church and held 100 people at gun point.

But the situation in Texas was neutralized when a group of people rushed the potential shooter, and Tony Garces was able to wrest away his gun.

What happened next? Police arrived on scene and immediately shot the guy holding the gun.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Joshua Len Jones entered the church after 9 a.m. Feb. 14, took out a gun and proceeded to hold approximately 100 churchgoers and staff members hostage.

While police were on their way, Garces and a small group of people rushed Jones, bringing him to the floor of the house of worship and allowing Garces to seize the weapon.

"I said, 'Hey, hey, I got the gun,'" he recalls. "'I took the gun away from him, we got him.' Then pop, pop!"

Garces was shot in the neck by police, and now he is hoping the city will take care of his medical bills.

"Train them better, man," he said. "That guy didn't know what he was doing."

Jones was arrested and is facing six first-degree felony charges of aggravated kidnapping.
