9 Shootings in Houston Within 24 Houston Hours

Saturday 2-6-2021 to Sunday 2-7-2021 was a very violent night in Houston. This violence resulted in at least three deaths. The President of the Houston Police Officers Union told our TV partner, KPRC Channel 2, “We haven’t seen this kind of violence, since the late 80s and early 90s when crack first hit the streets here in Houston.” Griffin went on say the force is down 2,000 fewer officers from what it should be. Repeat offenders seem to be at the bottom of the increase in violence.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo also told Channel 2, "“Our community/region had too much gun violence this weekend. We will work tirelessly to bring perpetrators to account, but we can’t do our best without the public."

Two of the shooting victims were ages 14 and 19 and were victims of an apparent drive-by shooting. They are recovering in the hospital now and police hope they will gather some information about the assailants from them Monday (2-8-2021).
