According to HPD investigators, the barrel of the woman’s rifle had ‘Palestine’ sticker.

However, Chief Finner emphasized that for the moment they do not know whether Genesse Ivonne Moreno’s attack was motivated by the situation in Palestinian.

What investigators did say is that, they found alleged anti-Semitic propaganda linked to a personal matter in Moreno’s home.

Genesse Ivonne Moreno had been arrested several times in Montgomery County for various crimes and even for illegal weapons possession.

It is not yet clear to HPD investigators whether she received appropriate medical help for her mental health issues.

Additionally, according to Texas public records, in 2022 Walli Carranza, Genesse Ivonne Moreno’s ex-mother-in-law accused her and her mother of keeping her away from her grandson.

Things get even more complicated because Enrique Carranza III, Genesse Ivonne Moreno’s ex-husband, is a convicted sex offender.
