Reluctant hero in Texas church shooting receives medal of courage




Quote
When the shooter opened fire, killing two parishioners in the West Freeway Church of Christ sanctuary, Wilson ended the incident as quickly as it began. As most churchgoers took cover between the pews, Wilson pulled out a handgun, assumed a shooting stance and dropped the gunman with a single round.

It was that quick action that earned him the Governor's Medal of Courage, the state's highest civilian award -- even if the 71-year-old doesn't find his own actions extraordinary.
