CHRISTIAN TODAY — The daughter of a man killed in a church shooting on Sunday as he served communion has said she forgives her father’s killer. 

Tiffany Wallace told NBC News affiliate KXAS that her father, Anton “Tony” Wallace, was serving communion when a gunman entered into West Freeway Church in White Settlement, Texas, and opened fire. 

She was attending the service with her children at the time of the shooting, in which her father and one other man died. 

The gunman has been identified as Keith Thomas Kinnunen, 43, who was killed at the scene by armed members of the congregation.

Recounting the terrifying moment when the gunman opened fire, Wallace told KXAS: “It just happened so fast and it was so crazy.

“I was like, ‘not my dad, not my dad.'”

After ensuring her own children were unharmed, she rushed to her father’s side to tell him she loved him.  He died shortly after from his injuries in hospital. 

She told KXAS that her father, a registered nurse, was a “godly” man who was popular at the hospital where he worked as well as in the church, where he was a deacon.

“He was just our rock that held us together,” she said.
