On Monday’s Houston Matters: Houstonians gathered at a pair of vigils Sunday to honor the victims of two mass shootings over the weekend — one at a Walmart in El Paso and the other on a busy street in Dayton, Ohio.
While the motive of the slain suspect in the Ohio shooting remains unclear, the 21-year-old suspect in the El Paso shooting faces the death penalty and federal domestic terrorism charges.
We discuss how Greater Houston has responded to the shootings and what we know about white nationalism and racism on the rise in our community.
Also this hour: We learn how extreme weather is affecting our bodies long after the storm has passed.
Then, we examine concerns about the I-45 project from local citizens and businesses and learn how TxDOT is responding to critics.
And sportswriter Jeff Balke updates us Houston sports.
