It comes after a violent weekend and the day before Mayor Sylvester Turner and HPD Chief Troy Finner are set to announce the annual "March on Crime" initiative. Last year's focus was road rage, gun safety and aggravated assaults. So far this year, murder is up in Houston over the last two years with 84, according to HPD, compared to 66 in 2021 and 51 in 2020 during the same time period.
