Antisemitic Writings Recovered From Houston Church Shooter, Gun Had ‘Palestine’ Sticker

By Hamodia Staff

The woman who opened fire at a Houston church Sunday was found to be in possession of antisemitic writings, and her gun bore a “Palestine” sticker, authorities said, according to a report in ABC News.

Two people were injured in the shooting, and the gunwoman, 36-year-old Genesse Ivonne Moreno, died during the attack. Two off-duty police officers reacted quickly to the shooting, and killed the woman.

One of the injured is Moreno’s own 7-year-old son; it is not known at this time if the boy was injured by the mother or by police during the crossfire.

In addition to the sticker and antisemitic literature discovered, police said they were aware of a feud between Moreno and her ex-husband, who has some Jewish relatives.

The injured child was shot in the head and is in critical condition, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said Monday.

According to police, Moreno has “a mental health history that is documented through us and through interviews with family.” Moreno has a history of arrests, and in 2016 she was placed under an emergency detention order by Houston police.

Despite her spraying an unknown substance and making threats that she was carrying a bomb, no explosive devices or harmful materials were discovered by police.
