The suspects’ names have not yet been released, but a police spokesman for the Garland Police Department said Monday they arrived at the event wearing “protective gear” and carrying “assault rifles.”

“He did what he was trained to do and under the fire he was put under he did a very good job and probably saved lives,” a Garland Police Department spokesman told reporters.

The gunman pulled up to the event in a dark-colored vehicle and immediately got out and opened fire. Two police officers were on the receiving end of the assault rifle bullets.



A traffic cop then fired back at the two suspects using a pistol, sending both of them to the ground.
