By Tim Collins

KOUNTZE — The service and visitation for 11-year-old Trintin Glenn, who died Nov. 8 from an accident involving a hunting rifle, has been set for Saturday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., said Wendy Wendt, Glenn’s aunt.

The Hardin County Sheriff’s Office responded last Wednesday at 6 p.m. to a call at a mobile home in Kountze, where they found the body of an 11-year-old boy.

The sheriff’s deputies believed the deceased and a 12-year-old boy were playing with a hunting rifle when the weapon accidentally fired. The shot killed one of the boys, later identified as Glenn.

Sheriff offers advice on security to church after deadly shooting

By Dannie Oliveaux

HARDIN COUNTY — With the Nov. 5 church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Hardin County Sheriff Mark Davis offers some advice for local places of worship.

Davis said a few local churches contacted his office and wanted to have a discreet conversion on some “dos and don’ts” at their church.

“Some have asked for some resources to go and find some information or find someone who would be interested in teaching or training for personal safety,” Davis said.

He noted churches are seeing what the schools saw years ago as for shootings.
