Cartoon Contest Shooting

Investigators have been at the scene of the shooting in Texas that left a security guard wounded and two gunmen dead. Eton Simpson and Nadir Soofi were killed by police after opening fire outside a contest in Texas where artists were showing off depictions of the Prophet Muhammad; a purposeful affront to many Muslims who believe such images are blasphemous. Reports indicate that ISIS has claimed responsibility, but may only be taking credit for inspiring the attack.
