The violent incident at the gas station, which claimed one life and critically injured another, is believed by police to have been a targeted attack. Yvette Coleman, another local resident, voiced her concerns about the widespread gun violence issue. She says, "Gun violence is bad. Not only here in Houston, but across the United States."


Police revealed that four Hispanic men were in a black Cadillac. Upon returning from a store run, they were met with gunfire from suspects emerging from two separate vehicles.

Ashley Castro comments on the reality of today's society: "You don’t know whose watching you and who’s out there. You’re going to get targeted regardless, you have money, you're flashing it, you’re on social media posting where you’re at and everything."
