In some shocking news, a woman opened fire at Joel Osteen’s megachurch in Houston yesterday before she was confronted and killed by two off-duty officers. Two people were injured, including a 5-year-old boy who came in with the woman. But Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said it could have been much worse.
The suspect has been identified as 36-year-old Genesse Moreno, who also went by the name Jeffrey. She had a history of assault, theft, and more. She also claimed to have a bomb, though no explosives were found. Moreno also had “Free Palestine” written on her AR-15.
Pastor Joel Osteen encouraged his church and the people of Houston amidst this tragedy and said that the church is praying for the little boy, the family of the shooter, and another injured man.
