“My son and these other poor families are mourning like us because of them,” Eric’s mother, Rose, said. “The police should have been following this. It should have been like that. So now I have to bury my son and two other young guys. One of them was my son’s best friend. Very good kids, just nice. It just breaks my heart.”

Erik was the youngest of three sons Rose and is described as a kind-hearted, hard worker who had a love for cars.

“Always respecting others, always,” Rose said. “Sister, brother, father. But I think I’m always more concerned with my health, and now I don’t believe he’s gone.”
Measho’s family said the former Bellaire High School star is struggling to support his family. Measho is also studying Criminology at the University of Houston and has grown up with an aspiration to be a police officer to protect the community.
