Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia announced a new effort to find violent offenders. Garcia's deputies will make a focused effort to find 452 people charged with felony aggravated assault. One of those includes Michael Barnett, accused of beating his brother with a baseball bat in July. Sheriff Garcia says this crackdown targets people accused of nearly killing someone during an assault.

"Some of these cases do speak to a homicide that didn't occur only because the victim survived and so those are the cases we want to put at the top of the list," Sheriff Garcia explained.

You can find the complete list of the 452 targeted suspects and their photos on the Crime Stoppers website.
