Police shooter linked to criminal Houston gang called 52 Hoovers

The burglary suspect who shot and wounded two police officers Tuesday has been linked to a criminal gang called the 52 Hoovers, a subset of the Crips with members in northeast, south and east Houston, a police union official said Wednesday.

The man - who has not been publicly identified - died at the scene after opening fire on Officers Ronny Cortez and Jose Muņoz.

Cortez remains hospitalized with a bullet lodged near his spine, and is expected to have surgery Wednesday. Muņoz, 34, a 10-year HPD veteran, was shot in the foot said Joe Gamaldi, second vice president for the Houston Police Officers Union. Muņoz was released Wednesday night.

Cortez remains at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.

2. ...being pushed by a contingent of door-to-door salesmen.

It's been an eternity since I've heard of anyone doing that anymore.
