  • WRONG MAN SHOT BY POLICE: At this Amarillo church.
A cautionary tale from Amarillo, Texas, about putting more guns in public places, including school classrooms, for safety.

A man with a gun was holding about 100 people hostage in a church. Police were called. Meanwhile, congregants wrestled the man to the ground and one of them grabbed his gun. The Houston Chronicle reports:

Officers entered the building and saw the churchgoer holding the gun and opened fire, according to the Amarillo Police Department. The churchgoer was hospitalized in stable condition.
The injured man was sanguine, by the way:

"There were other people there," Tony Garces said. "I just took the gun away from him. I got shot. I got the bad part. It's life."
Or, sometimes, death.
