She was also seen spraying a chemical before she opened fire. Houston Fire Department officials and a hazmat team reviewed the scene.

Moreno’s son suffered a gunshot wound to the head. And was rushed to the hospital. He is reportedly in critical condition.

A 57-year-old man was also wounded in the leg. He was treated and released from the hospital.

Many of the witnesses were grateful that the two off-duty officers showed courage when a rifle was pointing at “point blank range” towards them.

“They were a wall that existed between worshippers and terror. Between freedom of religion and murder,” Kevin Lilly, chairman of TABC said.

Motive

Moreno’s motives for the crimes are still being investigated.

Police say she had a dispute with her ex-husband’s Jewish family.  Antisemitic writings were discovered in Moreno’s possession and a “Palestine” sticker was on her gun.

Moreno also has an extensive criminal record including arrests including for assault, marijuana possession, forgery, theft, evading and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
