Police said one person tried to hit the victim in the head with a gun, but the gun went off, hitting the victim in the face.The apartment complex’s property management company released the following statement:“No one involved in this incident are residents at The Heights at Midcrown. Lisa Parry, Community Manager at The Heights at Midcrown, has been concerned about the business across the street, The Right Choice convenience store, and the people that congregate there since she began working at the property in 2012. No changes or improvements have been made despite her continuous and active attempts to contact local officials about it, including Mayor Ivy R. Taylor, the area city council representative at the time.”Some people who live at the complex said the store across from the apartment is not the problem."It's not the store. I don't think it's the store at all,” Briana Strother said.Strother has lived at The Heights at Midcrown since June. She said the apartment gates are always open, which she believes contributes to the violence."You guys aren't fixing your gates. That's allowing people to come in and out. The gates that you can walk through, they have codes on them that the codes don't work,” she said.SAPD said just this month officers are responded to two burglary calls, seven disturbances, one narcotic related call and one shooting."I can assure those people who are concerned that the necessary units have been made aware of this particular situation and something is going to be done about their concerns,” SAPD Sgt. Doug Greene, said.The mayor's office said it is checking its records for any complaints about the store.

Last year 550 kids attended the summit. This year the goal is 1,200 participants.
Parents can drop off their children at St. Philip’s college at 8am for registration. The program starts at 9am and runs through 4pm.
Participants engage with empowering and educational sessions to connect them to the idea of Dr. King’s belief in the beloved community.
A special music workshop from 9am to 1pm will be filled with various fine arts engagements for the Pre-K through 10 year-olds. This workshop will be located in the Heritage room.
“We will also provide a lunch,” explained summit chairwoman Carla Walker. “It’s a workshop filled with activities.”
The activities allow the kids an opportunity to learn more about Dr. King and how to continue the legacy.
Kids aged up to 19 are encouraged to attend.
There will be two general sessions – one at 9am and another at 1pm.
“So in between the general sessions we hold break-out session they can go into,” explained Walker. “We want these break-out sessions to be learning experiences.”
An important “I Can’t Breath” overview will be run by the San Antonio Police Department.
“This is so kids understand the mannerisms and how to deal with SAPD and any other police department in any city, state or environment that they’re in,” said Walker. “Some of our kids don’t know how to respond – out of either nervousness or just not knowing how to follow what is asked.”
For more information, call Carla Walker at (210) 843-1913.
