The two suspects were killed after they opened fire Sunday in a parking lot outside a contest for cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad, said officials. A security officer who was severely injured in the attack was admitted to hospital.

A group called the American Freedom Defense Initiative hosted the Muhammad Cartoon Exhibit and $10,000 cartoon contest. The cartoon exhibit featured “images of Islam’s prophet, both historic and contemporary. Two men drove up in a car and began shooting at a Garland school security officer who was at the gate. Both gunmen were shot immediately by police. About 75 cartoonists took part in the contest. According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad is considered disrespectful. Classified as an anti-Muslim hate group, the AFDI was behind controversial campaigns. So, it is suspected by police that the 2 persons who attacked belonged to some Islamic group.
