    When a man with a handgun walked into a church service at the Faith City Mission in Amarillo, Texas, most of the crowd of about 100 started to run. But Tony Garces, an ex-con, took his shirt off and confronted the gunman, according to a news release from Amarillo police. After Garces wrestled the gun away from 35-year-old Joshua Len Jones, and helped prevent what could have been another mass shooting on the same day as the school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., at least one Amarillo police officer shot Garces. He was hit twice, in...

Authorities say Fanning discovered his place of business, which is near his home, had been broken into and found Rosa in the shower. Fanning told investigators he confronted Rosa, who responded...

As CBS reports, surveillance video of the attack shows the gunman following the official in a parking garage. The official, whose name was not released, was dressed in shorts. The attacker doesn’t appear to try to approach the official. Instead, the gunman waits for him to exit the parking garage and fires...
