AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Colleyville Police Department is working a SWAT situation at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue near Dallas-Fort Worth, according to a tweet Saturday morning.
All residents in the immediate area are being evacuated, they said. At 1:20 p.m., the police department tweeted again that the situation was still ongoing and asked people to continue avoiding the area.
On the Congregation Beth Israel-Colleyville, Texas Facebook page, a man could be heard angrily yelling in a live stream that was started during this morning’s worship and continued to run. Just before 2 p.m. it appeared that Facebook page was taken down.
That synagogue is at the 6100 block of Pleasant Run Road.
This is a developing story.
