SUMMARY: A woman with a history of mental illness opened fire inside a Houston mega church, armed with an AR 15 rifle, and was shot and killed by off duty officers. Her seven-year-old son was caught in the crossfire and is in critical condition. Police believe she had no connection to the church and had anti-Semitic writings at her home. They suspect a familial dispute with her ex-husband’s Jewish family may have played a role in the shooting. The woman, known by multiple names including Jeffrey Escalante, had a criminal record and had legally purchased the firearm used in the shooting. Child Protective Services had investigated her for neglect and abuse in the past.
