In a livestream on the Facebook account of a Texas synagogue where an apparent hostage situation is taking place, the gunman can be heard speaking on the phone, according to a reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“I’m going to die. Don’t cry about me,” the man says repeatedly before the stream on Congregation Beth Israel’s Facebook page ends.

The incident comes as members of the reform synagogue attended Shabbat prayers.
