Between 1999 and 2013, there have been 649 recorded deaths as a result of deadly force in Places of Worship. Since 1980, there has been an average of 30 recorded deaths as a result of armed intruders per year. This form of violence saw a spike after the tragic mass shooting at First Baptist Church in Daingerfield, TX on June 22, 1980, resulting in the death of five individuals. In less than 60 seconds, it had become evident that religious organizations now faced a threat that was seemingly impossible to combat.
