Operation Triple Beam, a three-month collaborative effort by the U.S. Marshals Service and HPD, resulted in 341 arrests—220 of which were gang affiliated—62 firearms seized, nearly $60,000 seized and over $1 million in drugs taken off the streets.

KHOU 11 Investigates dug into Houston Police Department gang crime data and found no neighborhood is immune to gang-related crimes.

We took those records, which cover gang crime from 2012 to this month, and mapped out gang-crime hot spots across the city. Crimes span from the most common – drug crimes – to the most dangerous, murders.

The three neighborhoods with the most gang reported in Gulfton, Westwood and Sunnyside, but crimes span across the city.
