BREAKING: Body cam footage released in Joel Osteen church shooting

The shooter, Genesse Moreno, brought her son to the church before opening fire.

Body cam footage from the February 11 shooting at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Texas was released on Monday. Gun fire can be heard in the footage as officers can be seen advancing toward the downed shooter.

The woman who stormed into the church and drew her weapon, emblazoned with "free Palestine," can be heard asking the officers to stand down, saying that she had a bomb, and that they killed her son.

The shooter, Genesse Moreno, brought her son to the church before opening fire. The boy was shot and has suffered brain damage, according to his grandmother. Moreno was shot and killed by off-duty police officers who were at the church.

Moreno walked into Osteen's church on Sunday, February 11 wearing a trench coat and accompanied by her 5-year-old child son. She pulled out a weapon and opened fire. She had previous arrests for assault, forgery, marijuana possession, theft, evading, and unlawful carrying weapon.

The shooter, who was killed during the altercation, had gone by previous aliases, such as Jeffrey Escalante Moreno. She was from El Salvador and had been in a custody dispute for her son, who was reportedly special needs. The boy's father is currently serving time in Florida for failing to register as a sex offender.

Moreno expressed support for Bernie Sanders on social media and also had posted photos of her child. 

Osteen spoke out about the shooting, saying "There are forces of evil, but the forces that are for us, the forces of God are stronger than that."
