A potential tragedy was avoided early Sunday after police in Sequin, Texas, arrested a man who may have been planning to open fire on a church to fulfill what he claimed was a “prophecy."
What happened?
Off-duty officer, citizen, thwart potential church massacre early Sunday in Texas
Suspect said he was fulfilling a prophecy



Police went to the 2400 block of West Kingsbury Street around 7 a.m. after witnesses reported seeing a man with a gun who was wearing tactical-style clothing and a surgical face shield," the Sequin Gazette reported. An off-duty officer who first arrived at the scene said the suspect told him he was on his way to a church to fulfill a prophecy. The suspect was carrying a loaded firearm and extra ammunition, police said.
Seguin police arrested Tony Albert, 33, who was booked at the Guadalupe County Jail on charges of possession of marijuana and felony possession of firearm.
Albert did not name the church he was targeting, according to the report.
Police credited the citizen and quick police action for averting what could have turned into a deadly situation.
"The Seguin Police Department is extremely grateful to the citizen who called police," Seguin police spokeswoman Tanya Brown said. "If this subject was not stopped and apprehended the results could have ended differently."
Police said the investigation is continuing.
Where is this located?
Seguin is just 25 miles north of Sutherland Springs, Texas, where a church massacre in 2017 left 26 dead and 20 injured. The killer in that incident was wearing “all-black tactical-type gear" and a ballistic vest.
After opening fire on the church, he was confronted by an armed citizen who shot at him. Police later found the killer dead in his vehicle. The armed citizen had shot the suspect once in the leg and once in the torso. A third gunshot wound to his head was consistent with being self-inflicted, the medical examiner said at the time.

    I carry everywhere.  And pray I never have to use this tool except for target shooting.

    Some churches don't allow guns, concealed or otherwise.

    Isn't this in the same town as Matthew's Resistance chapel? I wonder if Matthew and Mater noticed anything.

    Sequin could be a different town from Seguin, though google will take you back to Seguin everytime...

    It isn't likely they would notice if they didn't watch the evening news (I don't recall them having TV though). They aren't really near the main town area.

    What if the church this fellow was going to was the local Resistance? I wish we knew what prophesy its involved in...  :confused:

    Yup and nope. He was arrested about 5 miles from here.
    .
    And, that Blaze writer has apparently never heard of Juan Seguin.

    This guy didn't even know what town he was in. Where he was arrested is very close to a truck stop, so I'd image someone dropped him there and he started walking. I think he might have been *trying* quite unsuccessfully to get to Sutherland Springs. The place he stopped in to is right next door to a church, but that one wasn't good enough for him as he said he was looking for a Baptist church.

    Update: The news now says he was looking for the First Baptist Church in Vidor, TX, so he only had 250+ miles left to walk.  :laugh1:

    The man was booked for marijuana possession. He's most likely some loon with a fried brain, his "prophecy" is likely incomprehensible to anyone with a functional brain.

    That shouldn't stop anyone interested in self-preservation.

    I, also, recommend people, who conceal carry, to get conceal carry insurance. (CCW Safe ... USCCA .... ACLDN ... etc) They will defend you and pay your attorney fees against Jew prosecutors hellbent on disarming America, and liberal women prosecutors who put career ambition over the inalienable right to defend yourself, despite the defendant being justified in the use of lethal force. Some insurance will even defend against civil suits and pay out, if you lose. You will have to gather the details of each insurance company to find which one works best for you.
