The female shooter who opened fire Sunday at Joel Osteen’s church in Texas is dead, authorities say.
“Officials in Houston say a five-year-old is in critical condition and another man is injured following a shooting at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church. Another man was injured. The suspect is dead,” reported the Houston Fox affiliate.
“It’s heartbreaking,” said Fox 26 reporter Abigail Dye.
Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?
“It’s hard to find another word other than evil to bring a child to a church [for a shooting]. I have chills just thinking about it.”
“We’re not sure why any of this would happen in the first place.”
The female suspect reportedly drove to the church with the 5-year-old child, and carried a long rifle under a trench coat as she entered the church between services, shouting she was packing a bomb.
But Houston Fire Chief Samuel Pena explained at a news conference: “We have not found anything that is of concern to our community or to our nation.”
“Shooter is down,” Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez wrote on X. “But it does not appear that@HCSOTexas deputies fired shots; other agencies fired.”
“We continue to assist in a methodical/thorough search of the complex.”

It was shortly after 2 p.m. Central Time that Gonzalez announced there were “possible shots fired at/or around Lakewood Church.”
And within the hour, police confirmed the scene was, in fact, the church of the famous evangelist.
