By Mike Stone and Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - Two gunmen opened fire on Sunday at an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, that was organized by an anti-Islamic group and featured caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad and were themselves shot dead at the scene by police officers, city officials and police said. The shooting, an echo of past attacks or threats in other Western countries against art depicting the Prophet, took place shortly before 7 p.m. in a parking lot of the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, northeast of Dallas. Police said they had not immediately determined the identity of the two gunmen or whether they were linked to critics of the event who branded it anti-Islamic. "I have no idea who they area, other than they’re dead and in the street," city police spokesman, officer Joe Harn, told Reuters.
