A grand jury decided Monday to take no action against Jack Wilson, the man who heroically stopped a church shooter in Texas in late 2019.
Wilson shot and killed the assailant after the man opened fire at a Sunday service at West Freeway Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas. The shooter killed two congregants with his shotgun before Wilson stopped him with a single shot from his pistol, killing him. There were nearly 260 people in the service at that time.
Wilson was awarded the Governor's Medal of Courage by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in January, the highest honor given to civilians.
Texas prosecutor Tim Rodgers praised Wilson's brave action after the grand jury's decision was announced.
"He did it responsibly and, as a result, he was justified under the law in his actions," said Rodgers. "Based upon the grand jury's decision, the law enforcement investigation and our review of the case are complete. We believe the grand jury made the right decision."
