    Active Shooter Stopped at Joel Osteen's Church

    DEVELOPING STORY: Officers are responding to reports of an active shooting at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston. The shooter was reportedly taken down by law enforcement. There are reports of at least one child who may have been injured.

    The church confirmed shots were fired, adding, "Please pray for Lakewood and our community."

    The Sunday afternoon shooting was reported while a Spanish language service was underway.

    "The active scene is at Lakewood Church on the SW Fwy service road," the Houston Police Department said in a statement. "Please avoid the area and use alternate routes. We have PIOs en route to the scene and will provide any and all updates here."

    It appears "a possible shooter is down," Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. Gonzalez corrected an earlier statement claiming it was a sheriff's deputy that fired the shot, saying "other agencies fired."

    The woman who opened fire at Joel Osteen's Houston-area mega-church on Sunday has been named as Genessee Ivonne Moreno, 36, according to the Houston Chronicle, as authorities revealed she had 'Free Palestine' written on her weapon.
