Reports from authorities in Houston, Texas, continue to come in after a woman allegedly entered Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church and began shooting before the Spanish-language service was set to begin at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11. Houston police chief Troy Finner told reporters that the suspect, armed with a long gun, began firing after she entered the church. Two off-duty police officers engaged with and struck the shooter.

"She is deceased here on the scene," Finner said. "Unfortunately, the 5 year-old kid was hit and is in critical condition at a local hospital. There was a 57-year-old man who didn't have anything to do with it, I don't think, who was shot in the leg. He's seeking treatment in the hospital."
