Live-Stream At Texas Synagogue As Gunman Enters And Holds Congregation Hostage


COLLYVILLE, TEXAS — A gunman is holding a congregation hostage, and police and SWAT are on the scene attempting to negotiate. The incident began late this morning at Congregation Beth Israel where the congregation was live-streaming the service on Facebook. A man can be heard on the stream, which has since been removed, apparently talking with negotiators and repeatedly saying “I am going to die” during the exchange.

It is not known if any hostages have been released, or if negotiations have made any headway.

A live feed from the scene can be viewed here:
