The shooter who opened fire in a Texas church on Sunday had visited the congregation multiple times, according to the church's senior minister. The minister also said that the man had previously received food from the church but grew angry when he was refused cash.

A 43-year-old man, who Disrn will not name, shot and killed two congregants at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement. He was killed by an armed congregant of the church.

Although his motives remain under investigation, the church's senior minister, Britt Farmer, said that he recognized the man after seeing him without his disguise.

"We've helped him on several occasions with food," Farmer told The Christian Chronicle. "He gets mad when we won't give him cash. He's been here on multiple occasions."

The man had previously been arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and theft of property, as well as faced arson charges.
