Prophet cartoons conference: 2 gunmen killed
The gunmen reportedly opened fire outside the conference at Curtis Culwell Center in Garland.
A security guard was injured during the incident.
"The first suspect was shot immediately," Garland Mayor Douglas Athas told CNN.
"The second suspect was wounded and reached for his backpack. He was shot again," Athas said.
Dutch anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilders tweeted: "Shots fired at Garland Mohammed cartoon free speech event. I just left the building after speeching. #garlandshooting."
"Picture taken just before #garlandshooting . Thank God the heroes of SWAT-team prevented the worst," he said.
The security forces later sealed off the Center.
