The search for the person who opened fire on the San Antonio Public Safety Building Saturday Night continues.
“We were able to locate some shell casings directly across the street. We were able to get a vague description of somebody seen running away from the scene after the shots were fired” San Antonio Police Department Sergeant Jesse Salame told KTSA News.
“We’re looking for a Hispanic male last seen wearing an orange shirt–and, maybe blue pants” Salame added. He also said officers are very much on heightened alert.
“We are not going to be targets, and we won’t allow ourselves to be victims of this type of tragic and senseless violence we saw in Dallas” Salame said.
Hours before the shooting at Public Safety Headquarters, a Black Lives Matter Rally took place in Travis Park. Councilman Ron Nirenberg told KTSA News he stands by his decision to stop by.
“If things are going to improve, we have to be willing to listen to the voices in our community–no matter how uncomfortable it might be” Nirenberg said, adding his belief that facing the challenges in front of us today requires being open and honest.
“Until we listen to our constituents–which is our number one job as representatives–we’re not going to get to solutions” Nirenberg said, admitting he hears the anger and the frustration.
“It springs from in one part not being heard, not being listened to. I take the job of being a representative of all San Antonio and my constituents tro listen and understand” Nirenberg said.
