GARLAND, Texas (AP) -- Two armed men who opened fire on a security officer outside of a provocative contest for cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad have been killed, authorities in the Dallas suburb of Garland said Sunday night.

The City of Garland said in a statement posted on its Facebook page Sunday night that two men drove up to the Curtis Culwell Center and began shooting at a security officer.

Garland Police Department officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed, the statement said.

It appears from photos I saw the police were well prepared with rifles.

The "security officer" was an unarmed security officer. Hit in leg, discharged from hospital in less than four hours. Everyone's hopeful for a speedy recovery!

"Free speech"? Yes, but like yelling " Fire" in a crowded theatre, it shoulda been obvious that some sort of negative reaction was going to happen. SWAT was already on scene due to that possibility.

There were apparently no Muslim demonstrators there at the Center - wonder if someone knew something was afoot?

Way to go Texas! We need more of these cartoon events to flush out the toilets. Waiting for the background on these two cartoon clown jihadees...

This thread seems to have a much more descriptive title and already has more comments. I hope the mods choose to leave this one open as I believe it will generate more discussion.

As a side note, this event center is one of the few places in Garland that is 30.06 posted. I refused to go to my niece's graduation last year because it was held there.

I somewhat wondered if the organizers held this event as bait.

So, who and what were the deceased gunmen? Before anyone else says it, I know 'dead men don't talk'. Even so, they were something from somewhere.

BTW, good job, Garland PD! :patriot:

Apparently, they both lived in Phoenix. There is supposed to be a news conference at 10:00 this morning, so we may learn more then.
