Death: A 17 year old male is dead following a shooting in Plum Grove. The victim is said to have called 911 to report that he had been shot multiple times. When deputies arrived, they found the man dead inside the home with his cell phone near him. The young man is not being identified awaiting notification of his family. Shortly after the call to law enforcement and the subsequent finding of the young man’s body, a person of interest was taken into custody by Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies in New Caney. Texas Ranger Brandon Bess took the suspect to the Liberty County Jail for questioning. The person of interest is said to be under the age of 21 and driving a car with Tennessee license plates. Again, a 17 year old living in the Montebello Subdivision south of Plum Grove is dead, apparently of multiple gun shot wounds and another man, said to be under 21, is being questioned by authorities.

Grant: City of Dayton has secured a $700,000 Comprehensive rail, infrastructure and safety improvement grant from the Federal Rail Administration. Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon, on Monday’s Party Line Program, talked more about the grant. Mr. Melancon said it took a combined effort of local, state, and federal officials to get this grant. The Grant monies will be used to study a grade railroad crossing at the various street crossings in Daytonincluding crossing US 90. That grant includes advanced planning and evaluations for Dayton’s biggest nightmare for decades. This $700,000 is most for planning and preparation and engineering for that job still some years away before construction begins.
