Court records show Genesse Ivonne Moreno had a tumultuous divorce and custody battle, and a rocky past.

HOUSTON — The woman who opened fire at Lakewood Church Sunday, 36-year-old Genesse Ivonne Moreno, had a previous connection with the church, according to Montgomery County court documents. Morena once attended Lakewood and so did her mother.

The church staff may have been questioned about her during contentious divorce proceedings. Moreno’s ex-mother-in-law, Rabbi Walli Carranza, accused Moreno and her mother of keeping Moreno's child away from the father in 2022 divorce and custody proceedings.

“These two women knowingly and intentionally harmed both (the child) and his father, Enrique Carranza,” Walli Carranza wrote in court documents.

“There are several possible reasons that have been proposed by law enforcement, child protective service social workers, by each of these two women themselves, and even by the pastoral staff of Joel Osteen’s Church when (Carranza) sought assistance from the church,(Moreno’s mom) attends when trying to understand what caused the women’s behavior,” Carranza wrote.

Moreno appeared to have a rocky relationship with her ex-husband. Enrique Carranza was arrested in 2007 for a sex offense in Colorado and failed to register as a sex offender in Harris County in 2016, according to Harris County court records. He is currently in prison in Florida for failing to register as a sex offender, according to Florida Department of Corrections records.

In 2022, amid a divorce and child custody suit, Moreno filed two protective orders against her ex-husband, claiming Carranza had threatened to hurt her multiple times through Facebook and text messages. The threats occurred between 2017 to 2022, according to Montgomery County court records. The protective order petitions were dismissed after the ex could not be located.

During the 2022 divorce proceedings, Moreno’s ex-mother-in-law also tried to become the managing conservator of their son who was born in 2016, according to Montgomery County court records. Walli Carranza claimed Moreno has a diagnosis of schizophrenia and Munchausen by proxy; had been investigated by CPS four times, and was found to have harmed her child twice. Carranza alleged Moreno pointed a gun at her ex-husband and stored an unlocked handgun in her son’s diaper bag.

However, the ex-mother-in-law did not appear in court to defend these claims and a Montgomery County judge ultimately made Moreno the sole managing conservator.

Moreno brought child to Lakewood Church

In a news conference Monday, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said the child Moreno brought to the church with her when she showed up with an AR-15 rifle and another long gun is her biological child. After entering the west side of the building, police said she almost immediately began firing rounds in the hallway. Two off-duty officers working security at the church shot and killed Moreno. Her child was shot in his head and remains hospitalized.

Finner initially said the child was “4 to 5 years old." On Monday, officials confirmed the child is 7. The child listed in the divorce documents was born in November 2016.

Moreno’s social media profile includes an Instagram post of a donation she made to Lakewood Church. Moreno wrote, “I will honor and bless my church.” Other posts include photos on how to clean an AR-15 assault-style rifle and a 2020 YouTube video in which Moreno warns of dangerous “psychopath” teachers preying on children online.

Genesse Moreno had an arrest history dating back to 2005, and was previously identified by several names, including Jeffery Escalante, Jeffery Genesse Escalante, and Jeffery G. Escalante-Moreno. Criminal charges include assaulting a detention officer, forgery for passing a counterfeit $100 bill, theft for stealing socks and cosmetics from a store, and evading police.

The 7-year-old boy who was shot when his mother Gennese Moreno attempted to shoot up Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church on Sunday has suffered critical injuries, his grandmother said. He was shot in the head and his grandmother said that he "suffered a gunshot wound to the brain." He is not expected to survive his injuries.

The statement was made on social media by the boy's paternal grandmother, Walli Carranza. Her son, Quito Carranza, is currently serving time in Florida for failing to register as a sex offender. The child had special needs, and a futher report based on court documents from a custody dispute indicated that Moreno had no real attachment to the child, only referring to him as "the boy."

"My son-Quito and I and the entire Carranza family ask for your prayers for my grandson [Samuel] who has suffered a gunshot wound to the brain," she said. Her son lost custody of the child during his divorce with Moreno in 2022. He said Moreno had mental health issues, as well. His mother submitted an affidavit saying that she was concerned about "complaints of child abuse and neglect, as well as reckless endangerment."

Moreno argued that the father was a registered sex offender, had multiple DWI charges, had physically assaulted her, and had never cared for the child. Moreno told the court that Carranza was "not capable of caring for a child with special needs."

"The outpouring of love and support we have received today is overwhelming and as we try to make sense of this completely preventable horror, we want to make three things absolutely clear. First, although my former daughter-in-law raged against Israel and Jews in a pro-Palestinian rant yesterday, this has nothing to do with Judaism or Islam. Nothing! But this is what happens when reckless and irresponsible reporting let’s people with severe mental illness have an excuse for violence," she said.

"Second," her statement continued, "no one may ever blame a police officer who carries out his or her rightful duty to save lives even if they are found responsible for shooting my grandson. The fault lies in a child protective services of Montgomery County and Harris County that refused to remove custody from a woman with known mental illness that was not being treated and with the state of Texas for not having strong red flag laws that would have prevented her from owning or possessing a gun. Let it be clear that the Second Amendment stops where the first amendment right to life begin, and it’s time to remove the US Constitution any protection for gun ownership."

"Third," she went on, "my family asks for privacy at the same time we ask that this be a wake-up call. My daughter-in-law when she was taking medication for schizophrenia was a very sweet and loving woman. But mental illness is real illness and when family members seek emergency protections they’re not doing so for their own sake but for the sake of the person who is ill….And to protect her child and society.

"If today you suspect that someone needs mental health care never cease your efforts to secure their safety and that of others. May HaShem bless the hands of those who hold our child and bring him healing just as G.d did when he was born at just 23 weeks. And may the memory of Geneses Moreno-Carranza be for a blessing…in her death may we find a way to keep others from dying."
