Owners of 'dangerous' apartment complex in Sharpstown agree to court-ordered security changes

There are new developments in Harris County's battle with a Sharpstown condo complex that officials say is infested with gangs.

The county attorney sued the 51 property owners at Le Promenade on Bissonnet near Fondren for failing to prevent habitual criminal activity. The complex sits right next to Sharpstown High School and has reported nearly 30 violent crimes in just the last two years.

Property owners this week agreed to a five-year court-ordered plan to crack down on security.

Conditions included security guards, cameras and background checks for all renters.
