Two gunmen have been shot dead after they opened fire outside a conference on cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed in a suburb of Dallas, US police say.
A security guard was also injured. Police sealed off the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland and evacuated participants. The gunmen’s car is being searched for a possible bomb, police added.
The event, organised by a group critical of Islam, included a contest for drawings of the Prophet.
Dutch anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilders was among those attending. He tweeted that shots had been fired and he had safely left the building.
It was not clear if the shootings were related to the event, said Garland Police Department spokesman Joe Harn.
There had not been any credible threats in advance of the event, he added
“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,” it said.
“Both males were armed and began shooting at a Garland ISD (Independent School District) security officer. Garland Police officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed.”

Just a few days back I said that the forces of Jihad work hard to see the civil war of Islam spilling over to the American homeland.
The Islamists take every opportunity to rake up violence.
Every citizen has the right to draw a cartoon of Muhammed. Anyone who is wiling to kill in a move to cancel our freedom of expression, must be arrested. They are best deported back to the country of origin.
The challenge with the ongoing jihad in America, is that the killers are born in the USA. They are raised being told that “Islam is as American as any religion”. President Obama as hailed Islam is several speeches, and equalized this religion with Christianity.
Jesus the Messiah has warned us in advance. The last days will be known for its widespread apostasy, and the great falling away. The ongoing bastardization of post civilized culture will spread globally. The distress among people will be unequal to what we have seen since the creation of the world.
If you name is not written in the book of life, you will panic, compromise and perish. Stand firm. Accept Jesus the Messiah as your Lord and God today. Amen.
