Texas Synagogue horror as Rabbi describes ‘terrifying’ and escape from gunman

One hostage was released after six hours while the other three escaped six hours later.

Rabbi Walker escaped after moving towards the exit and throwing a chair at the gunman.

According to the Rabbi it was a very nerve-wracking experience.

He said: “When I saw an opportunity, when he wasn’t in a good position, I made sure the gentlemen were still with me, they were ready to go.

“The exit wasn’t too far away, I told them to go.

“It was terrifying. It was overwhelming and we’re still processing. It’s been a lot.”

He also admitted that going back to the Synagogue “won’t be easy but it’s an important thing”.

The hostage-taker, British citizen Malik Faisal Akram, was shot dead after a stand-off with police.
