HOUSTON Haverstock Hills Apartments were dubbed the most dangerous real estate in Harris County, according to the district attorney s office.

It has been three years since a major crackdown on the war on gangs in the complex.

You couldn t walk around the family courts without running into somebody who was handling an aggravated assault or a murder where someone had been shot in Haverstock , said prosecutor Bill Exley.

Now residents say the area is safer.

More than three dozen members of the Blood and Crips gangs were ordered to stay away from the complex.

I can see a difference, said anti-gang counselor Reginald Gordon. I can feel it in the air.
