Peaceful Islam, proving yet again how benign they are…

A spokesman for Garland ISD has confirmed that gunfire was reported at an anti-Islam event at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland ISD.

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

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.

Garland police were still working to secure the area.

Opponents had said the American Freedom Defense Initiative’s Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest on Sunday would be an attack on Islam. But its organizers said they were simply exercising their right of expression.
