    TX Shots fired at a free-speech "draw Muhammad " event in Garland TX

    Two assailants were shot dead and one cop was injured in an exchange of gunfire outside a draw Mohamed event in Garland. The event was organized by courageous free speech activists Pamela Gellar and Robert Spencer.

    The two assailants were armed with automatic weapons and a grenade! This is a developing story!

    The contest, which was offering a top prize of $10,000, has received about 350 entries depicting Muhammad. Caricatures of the Islamic prophet are considered offensive by many Muslims

    UPDATE:

    Official statement from the city of Garland

    City of Garland, Texas Government

    As today’s Muhammad Art Exhibit event at the Curtis Culwell Center was coming to an end, two males drove up to the front of the building in a car. Both males were armed and began shooting at a Garland ISD security officer. Garland Police officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed.
    Police suspect the vehicle may contain an incendiary device and the bomb squad is on the scene. The surrounding businesses including Academy Sports, Walmart and Sam’s are being evacuated. Event participants are also being evacuated from the Curtis Culwell Center for their safety.
    Monitor @garlandtxgov on Twitter for updates.

    CNN has interrupted regular programming to cover this thwarted terrorist attack in Garland TX

    EDIT: back to regular programming. CNN will be live at the top of the hour with more information on what is almost certainly a coordinated jihadist attack.

    Yep - its not like France where terrorists can shoot and kill cartoonists at will. Try that in Texas and you will be sent home in a body bag!

    A tweet posted BEFORE the attack appears to be from one of the two dead mujahideen

    This is unconfirmed but based on the time stamp (posted 20 minutes BEFORE the attack) this guy is either one of the terrorists or a prophet.

    The bro with me and myself have given bay'ah to Amirul Mu'mineen. May Allah accept us as mujahideen.

    This doesn't sit well with me:

    "On Sunday, Geller was swiftly evacuated from the school building when the gunfire erupted, according to a report."

    I don't blame her for wanted to leave, but she's not the Head of State. SHE arranged for this event to happen, she invited people to attend, and she left the event and the people in danger while providing for her own individual safety.

    The whole thing stinks, top to bottom.

    The entire free-speech event was recorded on video. If you watch beginning at 1:19 you will see first indications of a terrorist attack when someone says "shots have been fired". The attendees reacted calmly under the circumstances.

    I'm not surprised that the event was well protected in Texas, but I am surprised that an art contest was held in Garland, Texas.

    Yes, that does stink. She should be like the captain of the ship and stay until everyone is safely on land. JMO

    It was held in Garland because a few months a go a controversial pro-Islam event (promoting Sharia law) was held in the same venue (a school owned property).
