AFDI Muhammad Art Exhibit

From The Dallas Morning News via Weasel Zippers:

Two gunmen opened fire Sunday evening outside an anti-Islam event at Garland ISD’s Curtis Culwell Center.

Police believe two people were shot outside the facility where an art show centering on caricatures of Muhammad was being held, KXAS-TV (NBC5) said.

There were reports that an officer was involved in the shootings, and police had sealed the doors to the center as SWAT personnel responded to the incident.

This story is breaking and more details should be coming soon.

UPDATE:  The center is currently being evacuated. Police are concerned there may be explosives.  (Live Video):

UPDATE: Jihad Watch reports an officer was shot:

This is a war. This is war on free speech. What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?

Two men with rifles and backpacks attacked police outside our event. A cop was shot; his injuries are not life-threatening, thank Gd. Please keep him in your prayers.
