It was a different time then.
Throughout the early 1900s all the way to the late 1960s, Beaumont was booming and new faces filled the streets at all hours of the day and night. Prostitution, gambling, crime and police corruption were commonplace. Since then, things have quieted down a bit and many who saw Beaumont’s heyday have come and gone. With them went much of the colorful history of early Beaumont.
But one Beaumont police officer is working to preserve that history.
What started as a small tour for youngsters has since grown into more than just a walk down memory lane.

A late Wednesday night argument between two cousins left one man dead after he was shot with a rifle. 

Police responded to a call of shots fired at the 10000 block of Dusty Lane Feb. 27 at about 11:12 p.m. to find 41-yea-old Lorenzo Simon of Beaumont laying in a drainage ditch with a single gun shot wound to his lower body, according to a BPD press release. 

EMS arrived shortly thereafter and Simon was rushed to the hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.
