Suspect Charged, Other Victims Sought in Incident at 6215 Tierwester
Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in an incident at 6215 Tierwester about 10:10 a.m. on Monday (March 4).  

The suspect, Johnny Dawan Hall (b/m, 27), is charged with criminal trespass in Harris County Criminal Court #15.  A booking photo of Hall is attached to this news release.  

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. Holbrook and Detective J. Roscoe reported:  

HPD patrol officers responded to a missing/endangered child call at an apartment at the above address and determined suspect Hall had disappeared with his five-month-old son after an argument with the child’s mother.  The child was not dressed for cold weather and the family was concerned due to Hall’s unstable behavior.  Hall and the child were located a short time later in the 3900 block of Cosby.  The child was unharmed and Hall was taken into custody without incident.   

Further investigation determined Hall had made advances toward a neighbor in the apartment complex and entered her residence while she was sleeping.  

Investigators are asking anyone who might have had similar contact with suspect Hall to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Los Rayados de Monterrey vencieron 3-0 al Atlanta United en el partido de ida de Cuartos de Final de la Liga de Campeones Concacaf Scotiabank 2019, disputado en el Estadio BBVA Bancomer.

Desde el inicio, los dirigidos por Diego Alonso dejaron en claro que quería llevarse el triunfo y al minuto 11 dieron el primer aviso. Miguel Layún cobró de manera magistral un tiro libre desde afuera del área que remató Nico Sánchez de cabeza, impactando el balón en el poste de la portería rival.

Al 14′, Dorlan Pabon ingresó al área rival, controló el esférico y el defensa Leandro González Pirez le cometió falta dentro del área. ¡Penal para Rayados!

RAYADOS 1-0 ATLANTA UNITED | Nicolás Sánchez

Al 39′, Rogelio Funes Mori dio un pase filtrado a Avilés Hurtado. El colombiano recortó a Leandro González Pirez encaró al guardameta y el tiro salió apenas desviado. Al 56′, Hurtado generó peligro nuevamente al abrir el balón para Jesús Gallardo y el seleccionado mexicano disparó, pero Guzan contuvo.


Al 79′, Carlos Rodríguez recortó a Eric Remedi y pasó para Dorlan Pabon. El colombiano hizo una finta sobre el defensa liberiano Darlington Nagbe y desde fuera del área fusiló de pierna zurda a Brad Guzan para mandar el balón al fondo de la portería.

Rungvisai and Estrada Rematch Coming to the Forum April 26

Mar 7, 2019

Rungvisai and Estrada rematch with Roman and Doheny aiming to unify on Friday, April 26 at the Forum
 Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Francisco Estrada rematch and Daniel Roman and TJ Doheny clash in a unification bout at the “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles on Friday, April 26 live on DAZN in the UK and on Sky Sports in the US – and tickets for the blockbuster fight night are on sale now! **TICKETS START FROM JUST $25 AND ARE ON SALE NOW FROM TICKETMASTER**
Rungvisai (47-4-1 41KOs) and Estrada (38-3 26KOs) served up a fight of the year candidate in February in the same LA venue – with Rungsivai edging it over Estrada by majority decision.

The Thai star will defend his WBC and Ring Magazine titles against the Mexican ace, with both men pocketing a pair of wins apiece since their epic tussle in California. Rungvisai was unable to make this week’s launch press conference in LA, but the challenger and former Flyweight World ruler believes that he will settle the score in another epic showdown.

“I’m extremely excited for this rematch,” said Estrada. “I know a lot of fans were asking for it. I’m getting ready to bring the title back to Mexico.

“I’m confident that I’m going to win the fight, but I’m also very excited to watch some of the undercard fights. I think it’s a stacked card, I like a lot of these fighters, so it will be a good card for everybody.”

Roman’s clash with Doheny promises fireworks, and it’s rich reward for two men who enjoyed great years in 2018.

WBA champion Roman (26-2-1 10KOs) made the first defense of his WBA crown in Japan over Ryo Matsumoto in February and followed that with another authoritative points triumph over Moises Flores in Frisco, Dallas in June, and then put the cherry on top of a fine year by stopping Brit challenger Gavin McDonnell in the tenth round of their clash on the first American boxing bill live on DAZN in October.

Like Roman, Doheny (21-0 15KOs) also went to the Far East for a massive fight, ripping the IBF crown from Ryosuke Iwasa in August in Tokyo. The Irishman’s first defense saw another Japanese look to take the title back to Japan, but Ryohei Takahashi was stopped by the 32 year old champion at Madison Square Garden in January.

“I’m excited to be back home,” said Roman. “This is a fight you want to see. The best against the best, champion against champion. I’ve been asking for this fight since I won the World title, and finally it’s here. It’s going to be a great card, but I feel we’re going to steal the show that night.”

“This is the kind of fight I want to be involved in,” said Doheny. “It’s a dream of mine – as soon as I got my World title that’s all I’ve been pushing for is a unification. I want to thank Daniel Roman for taking the fight and wanting to unify the division. In my opinion this is probably the best two 122 fighters in the world going off right now.

“There’s a lot of respect between myself and Danny, a fight of this magnitude does not need that kind of stuff. Come April 26 when that first bell goes, the respect will be gone out the window, and the fans can expect fireworks.”

A stacked undercard in support of the two World title battles is led by former two-weight World champion Jessie Vargas (28-2-2 10KOs) taking his first steps at 154lbs in his attempts to become a three-weight World ruler.

That will be Vargas’ first fight under new trainer Freddie Roach, and it’s a busy night for the Hall of Fame coach as Scott Quigg (35-2-2 26KOs) continues his charge to becoming a two-weight World champ.

Unbeaten Super-Middleweight talent Anthony Sims Jr is set for a breakout year and will fight for his first title on the bill. Sims (17-0 16 KOs), who is in action in Peterborough, England on Saturday night live on DAZN and Sky Sports, clocked three stoppage wins in the second half of 2018, and will look to convert that momentum in style in first the UK and then in LA.

Shakhram Giyasov (7-0 6KOs) and Diego Pacheco (2-0 1KO) landed wins in Tijuana, Mexico this weekend and will fight on the bill, while Eddie Hearn’s latest addition to his blossoming stable of young USA talents, Houston’s Austin ‘Ammo’ Williams, will make his pro debut on the card.

Tickets are on sale now prices from just $25 – to charge by phone with a major credit card, call Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Tickets are also available for purchase at or, and also at the Forum Box Office.

Mayor Turner announces the creation of a Smart City Advisory Council

Mar 7, 2019
Mayor Turner announces the creation of a Smart City Advisory Council
HOUSTON –   Mayor Sylvester Turner announced the creation of a Smart City Advisory Council comprised of City and regional partners today at a Greater Houston Partnership workshop on smart city planning.

The Advisory Council is charged with engaging community stakeholders, governments, academia and industry to develop a roadmap that will speed the adoption of technology and data-driven practices in the public realm. 
 A Smart City is one that uses data and emerging technologies to improve the quality of life for citizens, share information with the public, drive economic growth and build a more inclusive society. Governments and utilities across the globe are leveraging technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, digital services, advanced mobility and drones to improve citizens’ lives and solve the challenges of today while also preparing to address the challenges of the future.The Advisory Council will include representatives from public and private entities and will be chaired by Elizabeth Brock, Director of External Engagement for CenterPoint Energy.

“As our major utility provider, CenterPoint Energy has always been at the forefront of technology and innovation,” Mayor Turner said. “Elizabeth has a proven track record of building consensus in our community and getting things done, and I appreciate the leadership she and CenterPoint Energy have demonstrated in working to build a strong foundation as we grow our Smart City capabilities.”The primary aim of the Advisory Council is to establish a roadmap of strategies, processes and standards to drive Houston’s Smart City efforts forward. “We’re seeking to create a common vision and leverage technology to deliver a world-class customer experience,” said Brock.The Advisory Council will seek to align the roadmap to the Resilience Strategy the City is currently developing as a member of 100 Resilient Cities – pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Marissa Aho, the newly-appointed Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Houston, said “Technology is a great enabler for resilience but can also pose a significant risk as society becomes more technology-dependent. The Smart City Advisory Council will help the City leverage technology to its maximum resilience benefits while minimizing risk.”Houston has been a pioneer in the usage of Smart City technology and recently launched a Smart City webpage to showcase many of the projects underway.  These efforts and others led Smart Cities Dive, a government technologies publication, to declare Mayor Sylvester Turner the 2018 Leader of the Year.The City is also considered a flagship city by partnering with Microsoft – for the Microsoft Innovation Alliance initiative, and Verizon – which made Houston home to the first 5G implementation in the nation. “To do all these things, cities need help from the private sector and tech community,” stated Mayor Turner.  This announcement comes amidst growing momentum in Houston’s burgeoning technology and innovation ecosystem.

In 2017, Mayor Turner established a Technology & Innovation Taskforce to position Houston as a global innovation hub – and with the formation of Houston Exponential and the upcoming launch of the Ion, the city’s innovation hub, Houston is now making rapid strides towards that goal.  The Smart City Advisory Council will continue this mission by enabling City government and regional partners to lead by example to deliver technology that will make Houston a more attractive place to work, live and innovate. “The age of technology is here and we cannot afford to sit idle,” said Mayor Turner, “We must leap, not stroll into the future. The advisory council will set the stage for Houston to become the Smart City of the world.”

Vijender Singh Tabs Freddie Roach as Head Trainer for April 12 Ring Return

Mar 7, 2019

Vijender Singh Hires Freddie Roach as Head Trainer

Singh to fight April 12 at Staples Center on Lomachenko-Crolla card LIVE on ESPN+

 Indian boxing sensation and undefeated super middleweight contender Vijender Singh is set to begin the next phase of his career with a new trainer — Hall of Famer Freddie Roach — in his corner.

The 33-year-old Singh recently relocated his training base to Southern California to work with Roach, a 2012 International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) inductee.

Singh will make his ring return Friday, April 12 at Staples Center in a scheduled eight-round bout on the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Anthony Crolla undercard against an opponent to be named. His bout will stream live in the United States on ESPN+ and will be featured on the undercard broadcast, which begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

“I am thrilled to start my training under such a legendary figure in world boxing,” Singh said. “It’s a great honor for me to train with Freddie, who has already trained the likes of so many world champion boxers. Professional boxing in the United States is of the highest level, and I believe Freddie is the right guy to bring the best out of me. I look forward to showing the boxing fans a new and improved Vijender Singh. I know that with Freddie’s guidance, I can become a world champion.”

“I believe Vijender has the talent and the dedication to become a world champion,” Roach said. “He has a great amateur background, a style that will give any super middleweight in the world problems, and power in both hands.”

“Vijender represents the most populous country in the world,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. “We believe that with Freddie in his corner, Vijender will become a major star and open up the great country of India to boxing.”

Singh (10-0, 7 KOs), one of India’s most revered sporting figures, became the first Indian boxer to capture an Olympic medal when he took bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He has not fought since a unanimous decision win over Ernest Amuzu on Dec. 23, 2017, in Jaipur, India, and will be making his American debut on April 12. No Indian boxer has ever won a professional world title, and Singh, with Roach in his corner, hopes to make history yet again.

U.S. Women’s National Team 1, Brazil 0 – 2019 SheBelieves Cup

Mar 7, 2019


England Wins 2019 SheBelieves Cup After 3-0 Win Against Japan; 
Tobin Heath Scores Second Goal of Tournament, 27th of Her International Career; 
Ashlyn Harris Earns Seventh Career Shutout for USA

TAMPA, Fla. (March 5, 2019) – The U.S. Women’s National Team closed out the 2019 SheBelieves Cup and its fifth game of the year with a 1-0 win against Brazil in front of a Tampa-record crowd of 14,009 at Raymond James Stadium. The U.S. has five domestic matches remaining before the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup; two coming in April and three in May.

England won the 2019 SheBelieves Cup with its 3-0 victory against Japan in the first game of the night. England, which finished the tournament with seven points from two wins and a 2-2 tie with the USA, scored all of its goals in the opening 30 minutes against Japan and its three goals came on four shots on target.

The U.S. was unfortunate to not earn a penalty in the game’s opening seconds after Mallory Pugh was chopped down in the box, but pressed on to create more dangerous opportunities over the course of the game. With a bit of luck, the USA would have headed into halftime with a larger lead but was happy with Tobin Heath’s stellar strike in the 20th minute. Heath started the sequence, carrying the ball 50 yards before playing a perfect pass to a wide-open Alex Morgan to run in behind the Brazil defense. Morgan’s shot was well-saved by Brazilian goalkeeper Aline, but the rebound rolled to Heath who powered her left-footed shot into the upper left corner for her second goal of the tournament.

In the second half, the USA continued to pressure and control the game’s tempo but missed on a couple of finishes that could have padded the score line. U.S. goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris had a strong game, making a crucial point-blank save around the 75th minute and another on a Marta free kick in the 81st to maintain the USA’s shutout.

Goal Scoring Rundown: 
USA – Tobin Heath, 20th: 
Heath started the goal sequence with a fantastic run down the right side, cutting through to the middle before finding Alex Morgan with a pin-point pass inside the penalty area. Morgan’s initial shot was blocked by Brazil’s Aline but the ball rolled back to the top of the box where Heath sent a powerful blast to the upper left corner for the match winner. USA 1, BRA 0.WATCH. FINAL.

Additional Notes:

  • Tobin Heath scored her 27th international goal tonight in her fourth appearance of 2019. It was her second goal of the tournament and second of the year. She also scored vs. England on March 2. She is now tied with Shannon Boxx and Joy Fawcett for 21st on the USA’s all-time goal scoring list. Heath has seven goals in her last nine appearances with the WNT.
  • Ashlyn Harrisearned her seventh career shutout in what was her first start of 2019 and her 20th cap for the U.S. WNT.
