On Friday’s Houston Matters: Police in the Dominican Republic say 43-year-old Víctor Hugo Gómez, whose last known address was in Katy, is wanted in the mistaken shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz on June 9, 2019. Gómez, an associate of Mexico’s Gulf Cartel, was indicted in a major federal drug sting here in Houston back in March. We'll discuss the latest development in this bizarre saga with Gabrielle Banks, who covers federal court for the Houston Chronicle.

Then, News 88.7 energy and environment reporter Travis Bubenik will share details on the new Federal Action Plan to reduce childhood lead exposure.

Also this hour: As heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran rise, we learn from Rice University fellow Jim Krane about how U.S. interests would be ‘deeply undermined' by a war with Iran. We discuss what the implications are for Greater Houston's oil and gas industry.

Plus: Our panel of non-experts weighs in on stories from the week's news and decides if they're good, bad, or ugly. And, Houston Public Media’s Catherine Lu chats with Mollie Haven Miller, executive director of Dance Source Houston, about the 5th Annual Barnstorm Dance Fest.
