Dec 23, 2020
Charges have been filed against two suspects arrested in the fatal shooting of two men that occurred at 5959 Guhn Road about 12:20 a.m. on April 11.  

The suspects, Jose Angel Rodriguez (H/m, 36) and Ramon Carlos Hernandez (H/m, 39), are charged with murder in the 337th and 351st State District Courts, respectively.  They are accused in the deaths of Ruben Mata, 29, and Darren Price, 26.  

Booking photos of both suspects are attached to this news release.    

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J. Brooks and Detective L. Lovelace reported:

While en route to a shooting call at a motel at the above address, officers saw a dark-colored vehicle, with the rear window shot out, crashed at a nearby location.  Officers then noticed a male slumped over the steering wheel.  They forced entry into the vehicle, pulled out the man and provided medical assistance.  Paramedics arrived and pronounced the victim, Mr. Price, deceased from a gunshot wound.

Other responding officers arrived to the motel and found a male victim lying on the third floor hallway, also suffering from a gunshot wound. Paramedics transported the victim, Mr. Mata, to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Witnesses reported a verbal altercation between two groups of friends at the motel.  At some point, one person from each group began firing at the other group.  Multiple persons of interest were detained at the scene and questioned. 

Further investigation identified Hernandez and Rodriguez as suspects in this case.  Investigators determined Rodriguez, Hernandez and Mata confronted a group of males with whom they exchanged gunfire after a verbal altercation in the third floor hallway of the motel.  Mata was fatally struck.  As others involved fled the scene, Hernandez fired a gun at a vehicle driven by Price, who was also fatally struck.   

Hernandez and Rodriguez, in custody in the Harris County Jail on unrelated charges, were subsequently charged for their roles in the incident.

LOS ANGELES (December 23, 2020) – Super middleweight contenders Marcos “Madman” Hernandez and Alantez Fox will meet in a 10-round showdown headlining FS1 PBC Fight Night and on FOX Deportes this Saturday, December 26 from Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles.
The telecast begins at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT and features undefeated super bantamweight prospect Chavez Barrientes dueling Paul Carroll in a four or six-round special feature, plus unbeaten Radzhab Butaev faces fellow unbeaten Terry Chatwood in a welterweight fight to kick off the telecast.
FS1 PBC Fight Night precedes the FOX PBC Fight Night broadcast that begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and is headlined by unbeaten interim WBA Super Middleweight Champion David O. Morrell Jr. challenging Mike Gavronski in a 12-round duel.
The event will be promoted by TGB Promotions and will take place without fans in attendance at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall, an AEG venue, in downtown Los Angeles.
Fighting out of Fresno, California, Hernandez (14-3-1, 3 KOs) has faced excellent competition in his career, battling a litany of tough fellow rising contenders. The 27-year-old Hernandez has twice faced former unified super welterweight champion Jeison Rosario, fighting to a draw in their first meeting before losing the rematch. He most recently lost a decision to Kevin Newman in November 2019, a rematch of a fight Hernandez won in 2017. He has taken down then unbeaten fighters in Newman and Thomas Hill in 2016.
The 28-year-old Fox (26-2-1, 12 KOs) was unbeaten in his first 23 fights, moving his way up the middleweight division until dropping a 2017 battle by decision to unbeaten champion Demetrius Andrade. Fighting out of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Fox rebounded with three-straight victories before losing in the U.K. to Liam Williams in December 2019. Most recently, Fox debuted at the full super middleweight limit against Habib Ahmed in a fight that was ruled a no-contest in August.
Barrientes (4-0, 3 KOs) and his twin brother and fellow prospect Ángel were born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and moved to Las Vegas when they were two-years-old. Barrientes and his brother were first introduced to the sport by their father Richard at an early age, with their interest and skill eventually prompting him to open his own gym. Barrientes’ U.S. debut came on the same show as his brother in October as he won a decision over Ivan Varela.
The South Carolina-native Carroll (4-1, 4 KOs) enters this fight with three-straight stoppage victories, having most recently won by TKO over Jayvonne O’Neal in February following two knockouts in 2019. Carroll turned pro in June 2017 with a knockout of Shaquille Harris.
A prolific amateur in his native Khasavyurt, Russia, Butaev (12-0, 9 KOs) now fights out of Brooklyn. The 27-year-old turned pro in 2016 and quickly began moving up the rankings, beating veterans Lanardo Tyner and Silverio Ortiz in 2019. Butaev’s last outing saw him drop a close decision for a vacant WBA welterweight title to Alexander Besputin, which was eventually ruled a no contest after Besputin tested positive for performance enhancers.
Chatwood (9-0-1, 5 KOs) added two victories to his ledger in 2019, stopping James Blake Franklin in April before defeating Juan Ocura in August. The Little Rock, Arkansas native returns to action looking to keep his unbeaten record intact since turning pro in 2016. Chatwood has won seven consecutive fights since a split-draw in 2016.

 LOS ANGELES (Dec. 18, 2020): A new era has begun in the career of Joseph “JoJo” Diaz (31-1, 15 KOs) as he makes the first defense of his IBF Junior Lightweight World Title against mandatory challenger Shavkatdzhon “Shere Khan” Rakhimov (15-0, 12 KOs) in a 12-round battle between two southpaws with highly decorated amateur backgrounds. The co-main event will also feature a classic battle between Brasil’s Patrick Teixeira, who will defend his WBO Junior Middleweight World Title, and Argentine mandatory challenger Brian “El Boxi” Castaño
The event will take place Saturday, Feb. 13 and will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN in more than 200 countries and territories, including the U.S., Mexico, Russia, Tajikistan, Brazil and Argentina.
Information regarding the venue and undercard will be announced shortly.
“After his participation in the Olympics and turning professional, Joseph had one goal: become a world champion,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy. “Everyone at Golden Boy Promotions was so proud when Joseph had his hand raised and realized his dream. Now that he’s got that belt, he’s not giving it back any time soon.”
Diaz Jr. is a 28-year-old southpaw who represented the U.S. at the 2012 Olympic games in London. Immediately after, Diaz Jr. signed with Golden Boy and began a stellar career that has included fights against Gary Russell Jr.Andrew “El Chango” CancioJesus Rojas, and Rafael “Big Bang” Rivera. In his last fight, the native of South El Monte, Calif. defeated Tevin “American Idol” Farmer to become the IBF Junior Lightweight Champion, which began a new phase of his career as he begins to take over the division. 
“Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov is a very good fighter who is highly ranked throughout the world,” said Joseph Diaz Jr. “I know he’s been aching for a world title shot, but I’m ready to go out there and showcase that I’m willing to fight the best and defend my title with whoever wants to step in that ring with me. I’m the hungriest I’ve ever been, and there is nothing that he brings to the table that can affect me.”
“In my first main event on DAZN, I’m going to show to the world that I am the biggest threat at 130 pounds and a household name,” Diaz Jr. continued. “Not only am I doing this for myself, but I’m also doing this for my family. I fight to motivate people to keep on pushing and continue pursuing the dreams they have through the ups and downs in life. That’s my purpose. Come Feb. 13, I’m going to shine. It’s my time!”
Rakhimov is a 26-year-old puncher who earned gold medals in some of the world’s most prestigious international amateur tournaments. In 2015, the native of Qurghonteppa, Tajikistan made his professional debut, and in only his 11th fight as a professional, he captured the IBO Super Featherweight Title by scoring a sixth-round technical knockout over Emanuel Lopez. He defended the title three times, and one of those victories was against experienced contender Robinson “Robin Hood” Castellanos. Though no longer holding the IBO belt, he remains undefeated as he looks to capture a belt from one of the four recognized sanctioning bodies.  
“I’ve been waiting for this chance for a long time,” Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov. “Thank you for this opportunity to my team. My training camp is long one but very good. I will do my best to win this fight. I came here for the victory!”

Mayor Turner launches Vision Zero Action Plan to eliminate traffic deaths in Houston by 2030

Dec 17, 2020
HOUSTON – Mayor Sylvester Turner today launched the Vision Zero Action Plan (VZAP) to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030 and improve street safety and equity for road users of all ages, abilities and modes of transportation.
The mayor was joined by representatives from the City of Houston Planning Department, Public Works, Mayor’s Office of Disabilities and the Houston Police Department.

More than 200 people die and nearly 1,000 people are seriously injured in crashes on Houston roadways every year. That means someone in Houston dies in a crash every other day and three people experience life-altering injuries each day. These are our family members and friends whose lives are forever changed by traffic violence.

In August 2019, the City of Houston committed to Vision Zero, a global network of cities with goals to end traffic deaths and serious injuries. After extensive data analysis, community engagement and multiagency collaboration, the City of Houston created the Vision Zero Action Plan.

 “We mapped out traffic deaths and serious injuries happening on Houston streets, and what we saw was unacceptable,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner.  “So, we came up with a vision, a plan, and set the goal at zero, because zero is the only acceptable number of deaths. When you see folks crossing dangerous streets to walk their kids to school, or dodging traffic to get to the bus stop, or cyclists sharing road space with unyielding drivers, we have to make a hard left turn away from the mindset that Houston streets exist solely for cars. We need to expand our outlook on mobility to recognize that streets belong to everyone who walks, bikes, drives, uses a wheelchair, and takes public transit.”

Led by the City’s Planning and Development Department, the VZAP establishes four goals to reach zero: 1) create a safe, equitable, and accessible network of streets, 2) make walking, rolling, and biking safe, 3) make connecting to transit safe, and 4) make driving safe. The City will achieve each of these goals through measurable actions focused on communication, safe road systems, safe speeds, and programming. The plan outlines how and where to make proactive investments, prioritizing resources and action in vulnerable communities that have been disproportionately impacted by traffic deaths and serious injuries.

The VZAP draws input from multiple City departments and partner agencies including Houston Public Works, Health Department, Police, Fire, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities as well as our partners at Harris County, METRO, social justice and multimodal transportation advocates, the private sector, and more. The VZAP also builds on existing plans and policies, including Plan HoustonResilient HoustonClimate Action PlanComplete Streets and Transportation Plan, and the Walkable Places and Transit-Oriented Development ordinances.

“The work we do – planning for Houston’s future – improves the quality of life for residents, but the Vision Zero Action Plan does more. It saves lives,” said Planning and Development Department Director Margaret Wallace Brown, AICP. “The City has laid out this plan, and we have already begun work on implementation, but we all have a shared responsibility to improve traffic safety.  We will continue to collaborate with our partners to achieve our goal of zero deaths.”  

Based on five years of crash data, the VZAP focuses safety improvements on streets that have the highest density of traffic deaths and serious injuries, known as the High Injury Network, and in communities who are more vulnerable to both natural and man-made crises. Research shows that:Nearly 60% of traffic deaths and serious injuries occur on only 6% of our streets.Of those 6% of streets, 52% are in vulnerable communities who are, among other social and physical factors, mostly minority, experiencing poverty, lacking access to transportation, and living with older adults, young children or persons with a disability.One-third of traffic deaths involve a pedestrian even though less than 2% of residents walk to work. 
To open the dialogue about Vision Zero in the community, the city’s team of transportation planners hosted virtual open houses and socially-distanced outreach at transit centers, and launched an interactive community engagement platform over the course of the summer and fall 2020. Nearly 1,500 Houstonians used our interactive map to drop a pin on streets and intersections where they have a traffic safety concern. Residents commented on the action plan, took our safety survey and signed the pledge.

The plan identifies 50 actions with 13 priority actions that will be the first for implementation. The value and effectiveness of the remaining 37 actions are dependent upon the success of our top 13 actions. These actions will be continually informed by data from reports and community members. Among our 13 Vision Zero priority actions are redesigning 10 high injury traffic locations and implementing construction within the following fiscal year. We also plan to construct at least 50 miles of sidewalks a year and at least 25 miles of high-comfort bicycle facilities each year.
