In June 2021, police responded to West Tidwell Road for a shooting, according to Houston police. Two victims — Elia Penzloza, 33, and Buenaventurea Miguel Tapia, 37 — were killed in the incident.

A black man was seen shooting at the victim’s vehicle, a black Ford pickup truck as they tried to flee the area, according to Houston police. Both victims were shot, and the truck crashed into an apartment building.
