New Footage of Shooting at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church

New footage has been released by the Houston Police Department showing the moments after a shooter opened fire at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston. The shooting took place on February 11 and resulted in the death of the shooter, 36-year-old Genesse Moreno, and left her 7-year-old son in critical condition. A 57-year-old man was also injured in the incident.

The video footage, which includes surveillance camera footage from inside the church and body camera footage from the responding officers, shows the chaos and panic that ensued as churchgoers scattered and authorities approached the shooter. The footage also captures the shooter pulling her son out of a vehicle and walking towards the church before the shooting occurred. The officers can be heard praying and urging each other to approach the shooter.

The video also shows the exchange of gunfire between the shooter and the officers, as well as the moments after the shooter was struck by gunfire and fell to the ground. Officers called for medical assistance for the shooter's son, who was also injured in the incident. A bomb squad was also called to check the shooter for explosives, but none were found.

The motive behind the shooting is still under investigation. Police have stated that the shooter had a "mental health history" and had written "antisemitic writings." There may have also been a dispute with an ex-husband and his family, who are Jewish. The shooter had a previous criminal record, including charges of unlawfully carrying a weapon and assault.

The 7-year-old son of the shooter, Samuel Moreno, remains in critical condition. Updates on his condition have not been provided by the Houston Police Department.

Joel Osteen, the pastor of Lakewood Church, expressed his shock and offered prayers for the victims and their families. He stated that the incident was incomprehensible and that the community would come together to support those affected.
