In post shared on Twitter, The Houston Police Department confirmed that they were on the scene and investigating the situation.
While details are scarce, one media outlet on the scene said they spoke with a man who claims to have heard up to 30 gunshots. The individual, who was not named, said he fled the church alongside his children.
One man said he heard 20 to 30 gunshots when he ran out of the megachurch with his three young daughters. Authorities have not confirmed how many shots were fired or if there are any injuries.
