The daughter of one of two victims murdered Sunday morning at West Freeway Church of Christ is speaking out.
“You don’t think it’s going to hit home, and the fact that it hit our home and someone that supports us and loves us and is our dad [is gone], that’s what hurts the most,” Tiffany Wallace said.
Wallace not only lost her father, Anton “Tony” Wallace, Sunday morning, but the 64-year-old was taken just feet from her and in their house of worship.
“It just happened so fast,” she said.
Wallace was a husband, father, grandfather and a registered nurse. He was also a deacon and lifelong member of West Freeway Church of Christ.
Wallace said her dad had just given out communion in the back of the church when she noticed a man she’d never seen before approach him.
“The guy just stood up from the pew, turned toward my dad and I guess he shot at the security guard,” she said.
Through the shots and chaos that ensued, she realized her dad had been hit.
“I ran toward my dad and the last thing I remember is him asking for oxygen, and I was just holding him, telling him I loved him and that he was going to make it,” Wallace said.
He was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his injury.
