Houston's gang activity is the subject of a new website. The FBI is teaming up with local law enforcement on the initiative to increase community awareness through education regarding the threat of criminal gang activity. Pat Hernandez has more.

The website Stop Houston Gangs.org was created to keep the community informed about gangs in the area. It will allow residents to report anonymous tips about criminal gang activity.

"You know, the gangs say that they own the night, well this website shines the light of day on those thugs."

That's Harris County DA Pat Lykos. She stays combining law enforcement with residents will help make a dent in gang activity here.

"If we're gonna make Texas and Harris County safer, it's not just law enforcement, it's the entire community that must be involved. And parents and educators can learn from this website, and also of extreme value is that you can offer through the website anonymously. They're not gonna be tracked. It is all of our responsibility to end this scourge of gang violence."
