Katy Homeowner Shoots Teen Car Burglary Suspect

KATY MAGAZINE

July 27, 2018

By Jennifer Skelton

A Katy homeowner shot a teen burglary suspect, John Mixon, around 1:00 am on Friday morning in the Memorial Parkway subdivision.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office said a woman saw a motion detector light come on outside the home in the 21000 block of Park Valley Drive in the Memorial Parkway subdivision near Westgreen Blvd and Highland Knolls. The elderly homeowner looked out her window and saw Mixon wearing a mask and hooded sweatshirt in her detached garage trying to break into her car.

The husband grabbed a gun and confronted the Mixon, 19, who is also a Memorial Parkway resident. The homeowner attempted to detain him before police arrived butwhen Mixon started towards the elderly homeowner, he fired and Mixon was hit in the head. The homeowners were not injured.

According to Harris County Sheriff  Precinct 5 investigators, Mixon ran to a nearby home and hid behind an air conditioning unit, where a K9 officer found him.

He was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital. His condition was initially reported as serious but the bullet appears to have only grazed his head.

There has been an increase in car burglaries in neighborhoods on the south side of Katy. Many of these have been caught on video and released to the public for help in identifying the suspect. At this time, police do not know if this suspect is responsible for other burglaries but are looking into this possibility.

The homeowners have a video surveillance system that the suspect was caught on. Below is a still shot from that video.

Mixon will be charged with felony home burglary. Mixon has a criminal history in Harris County for theft and evading arrest and is currently on probation.

Katy Magazine will release more details as they become available.

Katy Mom Hit By Car in Bear Creek Village Dies

KATY MAGAZINE  

July 23, 2018 

By Ashley Lancaster

Katy Magazine is sad to report that Elizabeth Lugo, the mother who was struck by a car while walking with her child in a stroller has died from her injuries.

On July 20, Katy mom Elizabeth Lugo was hit by a car while walking her baby in a stroller  in Villages of Bear Creek off Fry Rd. in north Katy.

The driver suffered a seizure, which presumably led to him losing control of the vehicle, and struck Lugo, throwing her into the driveway of a nearby home.  The owner of the home was not present at the time of the accident.

She was immediately taken to Cy-Fair Hospital in critical condition, but tragically died just after 1 a.m. on Sunday night. The baby was not badly injured and is expected to be okay. There is no information on the status of the driver.

Check back for updates on funeral and memorial services.

Cinco Ranch Star Linebacker Receives 24 College Offers

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS
July 16, 2018 

Ashley Lancaster 

Cinco Ranch defensive star, inside linebacker David Gbenda, heads into his senior year with over 20 college offers on the table.

Elite college football programs are all clamoring to sign Cinco Ranch High School’s dynamic defensive star, and 4-star Texas recruit, David Gbenda (#33).

AN OFFENSIVE NIGHTMARE

Gbenda, who will graduate in 2019, has received offers from no less than 24 national football powerhouses like Notre Dame, Nebraska, Michigan, and Ole Miss.

The 6’0, 212-pound inside linebacker earned his keep among the top college prospects in Texas last year, with 40 independent tackles, 16 assists, 2 sacks, and a total of 8 tackles for loss throughout the season. In their match up against Seven Lakes, Gbenda stymied the Spartan offense with an incredible 10-yard sack. Even Katy’s elite running game had more trouble than usual moving the ball against #33 and the rest of the strong side defense.

Recently, Gbenda narrowed down his myriad of college offers to a Top 10. On the list are University of Texas, Notre Dame, University of Houston, Michigan, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Washington, Ole Miss, Texas Christian University, and Missouri. He is expected to make his final decision in December 2018.

THROWBACK TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS

As anyone knows, talent can only get you so far – you have to have the work ethic and heart to make plays happen in a district as competitive as Katy. According to Cinco’s head coach Don Clayton, Gbenda has all of that and more in spades.

“His energy, leadership of the team, and his constant commitment to improve are a throwback to the good old days of football, when people played as hard as they could, for as long as they could. He is always striving to perform at his absolute best,” says Clayton.

Gbenda himself is taking all of the attention in his stride. “It’s kind of crazy to be honest. As a freshman and sophomore, I saw others in my grade being heavily recruited and I just thought,  ‘I want that and to be heavily recruited by big name programs.’ It’s so unreal, and a blessing to me,” he says. David says that the coaches at Cinco have been crucial in his success. “With the competition we face, the coaching staff (at Cinco) has helped me learn the game,” he says.

2017 HUDL HIGHLIGHTS

Fans can get their first glimpse of Gbenda’s skill at the scrimmage against Stratford on August 24 at Cinco Ranch High School. See the full Katy ISD Varsity Football Schedule here.

Kittens Found Trapped in a Gym Bag in West Memorial

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS

July 7, 2018

Natalie Cook Clark

 

Deputy Debra Albert and the kittens.

The Bag Was Moving

Harris County Deputies Diego Loucel and  Debra Albert responded to a report of a suspicious cloth bag that was left in the middle of a  median in a West Memorial subdivision in Katy. “The bag is moving,” a Katy resident told the dispatcher for Harris County’s Precinct 5’s office. They arrived to investigate the red cloth bag in the West Memorial neighborhood around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.

“West Memorial is Loucel’s area but I’ve had experience with these calls and was afraid we’d find an animal,” said Deputy Albert. “As soon as we got out of the car I could hear the meowing.”

“I shined my flashlight into the bag and saw two eyes looking back at me. It was a kitten,” recalls Deputy Loucel. “Then when we looked further we found three little kittens.”

Kittens Brought Back To Substation

Albert and Loucel took the kittens back to a substation where they got food, water and lots of attention. “Once we got some food in the kittens it didn’t take long to see a 180 change in them. They went from just laying around, probably malnourished, to happy and active kittens,” said Loucel.

“We called the SPCA and they came to look at them. The estimated them around 2 months old but couldn’t take the kittens in,” said Albert. “We looked after them and played with them until an Animal Crimes deputy took them to a veterinarian.”

Available for Adoption

The kittens were all very emaciated but expected to be okay. They were taken to the Harris County Animal Shelter at 612 Canino Rd. The kittens are now up for adoption. Anyone interested in adopting the gym bag kittens can visit the shelter or call 281-999-3191.

If You Have Information

Dumping an animal is a crime. It is animal cruelty, which depending on the offense can be a felony. If you have information on who dumped these kittens, please contact the Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce. Call 832-927-PAWS or visit their website.

If you see someone dumping an animal call your local precinct but also try and get some information. What does the person look like? What is the license plate number? What does the car look like? Of course, you safety is the priority but if you can safely get information to give the authorities that is helpful.

If you need to re-home an animal there are other alternatives to dumping them. Here are just some rescue/shelters in the Katy area.

“I just couldn’t believe someone had taken the time to put these three little kittens in a gym bag, drive them to a neighborhood and dump them in the middle of the median,” said Loucel. “I wish they would have given them a chance.” I’m going to continue to follow the kittens’ story.”

Morton Ranch Grad Signs $72 Million NFL Contract Extension

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS

July 2, 2018

Natalie Cook Clark & Ashley Lancaster

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter was named the 2018 Breakout Star, and signed an extension with the team for $72 million last Wednesday.

Katy, Texas’ Danielle Hunter proudly represents his hometown by shining in the big leagues with a new $72 million contract extension from the Minnesota Vikings.

Hunter signed with the Vikings in 2015, and his electrifying performance resulted in a 5-year contract extension for $72 million, with a $15 million signing bonus. These contract terms place him in the Top 10 highest paid defensive players in the NFL – impressive, considering that the DE is only 23 years old. On paper, his 2017 season may not look like much, with 25.5 sacks under his belt in his three seasons – but he hasn’t been a starter. The Vikings began to set him loose on the opposing offense and saw his incredible potential.

 

From Maverick to Tiger and now Viking

Hunter was a football and track and field star graduate from Katy ISD’s Morton Ranch High School. After he graduated from Morton Ranch he attended LSU from 2012-2014 where he was a two-year starter and defensive end. According to the NFL Network’s Peter Schrager Hunter is pegged as a “breakout star” for 2018 because of the talent that the Vikings have along their defensive front Hunter is rarely going to see double teams. He should have the ability to terrorize opposing offenses while only having to beat one guy. The other team can’t double team everyone, so the Vikings’ defensive line should have the ability to make a play on almost every snap. In football terms this is huge.

“I was shaking with excitement,” Hunter told the Vikings’ official website. “I was like, is this real.”

Hunter is an American born in Jamaica but spent his formative years in Katy, Texas where he grew to love football. Many can’t wait to see what the season has in store for this 23 year old.

The Vikings have been praised and noted for being strategic in their deals to open a window into the championship season. Could we see a Katy native in a Super Bowl game this year? From the sounds of the stats it could come to be.

The NFL season opener is September 7.  The Vikings have their first preseason game on Saturday August 11 vs. the Denver Broncos. Their first regular season game is slated for Sunday September 9 vs. the San Francisco 49ers.

With the NFL Football season quickly approaching it’s time to prep your Fantasy Football roster. Are you including Katy’s Danielle Hunter in your roster? What do you think of the Vikings’ strategy to go for a championship? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
