A possible shooting at a church in Houston has left the community in shock. The incident occurred during a live service led by well-known pastor Joel Osteen, with an average attendance of 45,000 people. The church was hosting a Spanish-language mass when chaos broke out and police responded to an active shooter near the Southwest Freeway just after 2 p.m. local time.
Witnesses reported hearing a burst of gunfire, which caused panic and people to flee. It is unclear if there are any other suspects or if anyone else has been taken into custody. The condition of the suspect is unknown. Law enforcement and other agencies responding to a potential active shooter are on the scene, but the situation remains unsolved.
Lakewood Church warned followers about the situation on social media and asked for prayers as police cars and ambulances outside the church. The church had already begun its service when gunshots rang out in the background, causing confusion and fear among attendees.
The community is coming together to support Lakewood Church during this difficult time, offering prayers for those affected by this tragic event. As law enforcement continues their investigation, we can only hope for peace and safety for all involved.
