HOUSTON – Wednesday, May 18, 2022, in the mid-afternoon at the GPISD football stadium, the Eastside 2021 varsity team received their championship rings. Also getting rings were others who contributed to the program’s winning season.

Players, coaches, trainers, and other associates of the football program lined up next to tables spread out over 150 feet. They were waiting with eager anticipation of opening the sealed ring boxes on the tables. No one was allowed to see their ring until Head Coach Jon Kay gave the go-ahead to open the boxes. And when he gave the word to open, loud sounds of excitement could be heard from the recipients by the crowd of spectators gathered to watch the event.

GALENA PARK – Tuesday, May 17th, in the Galena Manor subdivision, in the quiet hours just before midnight, neighbors were awoken by loud gunshots, causing them to panic and duck for cover.

According to Willie Willis and her daughter Nadine Huff, the shots rang out so loud as if they were coming into their home from across the street at 2514 Fourth Street. Willis said it was just before midnight on the 17th, she was watching her favorite religious program, when all of a sudden she said she heard, “pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow sounds coming from a gun. I was so scared I got on my hands and knees and crawled to my bedroom and lay down on the floor praying I’d not be shot.”

According to Harris County Sheriff Office, the Galena Park police and fire departments were dispatched to the scene about midnight. Upon arrival, police and rescue personnel located two women, a 47 and 23 years old, and a man about 50 years old, with gunshot wounds. The man was the shooter and he died from his injuries, which they later discovered were self-inflicted. A family friend said the shooter was the mother’s ex-boyfriend.
