Gunman Opens Fire in Houston Church During Live Mass Broadcast

In Houston, a local law enforcement agency received a report of a possible shooting at Lakewood Church, which is led by pastor Joel Osteen. The church has an average attendance of 45,000 people and was hosting a live service when the incident occurred.

Gunshots were reportedly fired in the background during the service, prompting police to respond to the active shooting near the Southwest Freeway shortly after 2 p.m. local time. It is unclear if anyone was injured or killed in the incident.

The Spanish-language mass was about to begin when chaos broke out at the church. Police reportedly shot a possible suspect, but it is unknown what their condition is or if there are any other suspects involved. Law enforcement officials and other authorities are on the scene responding to the potential active shooter situation.

Witnesses reported hearing a burst of gunfire and running away in panic. The church alerted its followers on social media about the situation and asked for prayers for those affected by this tragedy. Media reports showed police cars and ambulances in front of the church as people gathered outside to wait for more information about what had happened inside.

The situation remains unresolved as law enforcement continues to investigate and work with other authorities to determine what led to this unfortunate incident at Lakewood Church, one of Houston’s largest churches.
