    Shooting at Joel Osteen's Church

    Looks like this has been missed in the coverage of the Super Bowl. There was a shooting yesterday at Joel Osteen's Houston megachurch.

    Lakewood Church shooting: Woman with child in tow opens fire inside Joel Osteen's Texas megachurch
    Houston police said the child was shot and the suspected shooter was killed

    Two people were injured and one suspect was killed during a shooting at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church on Sunday afternoon, Texas authorities say.

    During a press conference, police chief Troy Finner said that the shooting began at 1:53 p.m. It happened at around the time that the Spanish language church service was scheduled to start.

    The suspect, who was a woman, entered the church with a long rifle. She was wearing a backpack and a trench coat, and was accompanied by a "small child, approximately 4 to 5 years old," Finner said.

    After she began shooting, off-duty officers at the scene "engaged" the woman and returned fire. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

    A woman walked into a Houston megachurch with a child and began shooting. Here’s what we know

    A woman who walked into a popular Texas megachurch Sunday afternoon with a long gun and a young child opened fire before she was killed by law enforcement officers on scene. The gunfire left the child in critical condition and another man injured, officials said.

    Authorities are now probing the shooting at televangelist and pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church – roughly 6 miles from downtown Houston.

    The woman, estimated to be between 30 and 35 years old, entered the church shortly before 2 p.m. wearing a trench coat and backpack and opened fire, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said in a Sunday afternoon news conference.

    The shooter died at the scene after two law enforcement officers intervened and she was shot, Finner said.

    The young child was hit during the shooting and is in the hospital in critical condition, the police chief said. It’s unclear who fired the shot that injured the child. CNN has reached out to police for more information.

    Police have not shared details about a possible motive in the shooting or said what the woman’s relationship to the child who accompanied her is. The injured man was shot in the leg and sought treatment at a hospital, Finner said.
    Interestingly, the CNN article had this tid bit that sheds quite a bit of light, but I'm sure it'll be too politically incorrect for anyone to call 'em out on it:

    The shooter used an AR-15 that had “Free Palestine” written on it, according to a federal law enforcement source. Investigators are trying to sort out whether she was politically motivated or a disturbed individual, the source said.
    If that had been a right wing slogan, we'd all be on trial by now. Probably also explains why the media has been relatively quiet about it.
    It's f*****g great, putting holes in people, all the time, and it just puts 'em down mate, they drop like sacks of s**t when they go down with this.

    Anywhere we can confirm the "Free Palestine" part of this? I'd hate to fall for a well-placed bit of propaganda.
    What if this whole crusade's a charade?

    I have my own opinions on Osteen and they aren't necessarily favorable.
    But I wonder what was going through her mind shooting up a Church.
    The whole Hamas/Palastine thing is like a magnet for crazies.
    Too bad about the child though.

    So far I haven't found the "Free Palestine" part confirmed anywhere, just the CNN report quoting an unnamed "federal law enforcement source".

    "Free Palestine" was written on the gun belonging to a woman who opened fire at celebrity pastor Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation.

    Came back to report that as well.

    BREAKING: Joel Osteen church shooter identified as Genesse Moreno, also went by Jeffrey: local media
    Moreno was shot and killed by off duty officers, and the weapon was emblazoned with the slogan "Free Palestine."

    The individual who walked into Joel Osteen's Lakewood, Texas church on Sunday, pulled out a gun and opened fire, has been identified as Genesse Ivonne Moreno, 36. Moreno, wearing a trenchcoat, opened fire when entering the church along with a 5-year old child.

    Local news reports that multiple sources have said that Genesse Ivonne Moreno is suspected of being the "armed woman" who was killed at the church Sunday.

    Reports indicated that the shooter was female, but it has since been revealed that Moreno was male. Moreno was shot and killed by two off-duty officers. Moreno's weapon was emblazoned with the slogan "Free Palestine."

    Jeremy Rogalski of KHOU-TV further reported that Moreno "had prior arrests for assault, forgery, marijuana possession, theft, evading, and unlawful carrying weapon."
    Not sure if it was male to female, or female to male, but there is a decided mix of info on the subject.

    I'm so confused. Was it a woman taking testosterone?

    That makes sense then. I'm starting to see a trend.
