7-Year-Old Victim of Lakewood Church Shooting Faces Brain Damage

Tragedy struck Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, when a 7-year-old boy was shot in the head after a violent confrontation. The child’s grandmother, Walli Carranza, broke the tragic news on social media.

The boy “has lost a major part of what makes us who we are…..a portion of his frontal lobe,” Walli Carranza wrote Thursday on Facebook. “Half of his right skull has to be surgically removed during two surgeries done in less than 24 hours.”

The incident began with gunfire, which caused chaos and uncertainty in its aftermath.

Understanding the Effects of Brain Injury on A Young Child

The frontal lobe of the brain is involved in many cognitive tasks, including thinking, planning, and problem-solving. Its impairment can have serious ramifications for a person’s capacity to function normally.

The 7-year-old victim’s loss of a piece of his frontal lobe jeopardizes not only his physical health but also his cognitive and emotional well-being.

The path to recovery will surely be long and difficult, with unclear outcomes hanging over the child’s future.

Investigation Continues: Mystery Surrounds Texas Megachurch Shooting

The reason for the semi-automatic rifle shooting by 36-year-old Genesse Ivonne Moreno remains a mystery to investigators looking into the Texas megachurch case. Before Moreno was slain by law enforcement, her son and a man were hurt. Carranza claims that Moreno was permitted to possess a firearm despite a history of mental health issues.

Carranza posted on Facebook on Monday, saying, “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.”

The shooting was a “completely preventable horror,” she wrote.
