Not subscribed to local news but still want to stay up-to-date on the happenings around town? Look no further. Highlighting notable stories from external San Antonio news sources, State of the City summarizes the most captivating news headlines of the week. This week’s topics range from Veterans Day celebrations to H-E-B’s reported attempt to include e-payments to pay for groceries.

Texas cools down

After a rainy and chilly weekend, temperatures will continue to remain cool throughout the week. It is expected to see highs in the mid to low 70s and lows in the high to low 50s. It is also expected to be partially cloudy throughout the week, with chances of rain on Sunday, Nov. 19 and Monday, Nov. 20.

H-E-B to start including e-payments

H-E-B will reportedly soon include e-payments such as Apple Pay among its payment options. After many customers expressed frustration at being unable to use e-payments at the Texas-based grocery store, the company responded that they would be considering bringing in e-payments as an option to pay for groceries. 

“We are actively exploring a broad range of technologies to enhance how customers shop and pay for products,” the company tweeted. “We hope to offer these services in the future.”

Dogs maul man, get shot by neighbor

On the night of Nov. 8, a man was walking down the 100 block of South San Gabriel Avenue when he was attacked by two dogs from a nearby home. A neighbor who witnessed the attack shot both animals, killing one of them on the scene. The other was taken to an overnight animal hospital, where it died later that night. 

According to Animal Care Services, this was not the first time the dogs had gotten loose, and the owner has multiple citations. The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to his legs.

Man shot through window near the Westside

A man was shot and killed through a window on Friday at 9 p.m. According to SAPD, no shell casings have been found, and there are no descriptions of suspects or vehicles, though they believe the shots came from outside the home. No arrests have been made, and the investigation is still ongoing.

Veterans Day celebrations

People around San Antonio honored veterans for Veterans Day over the weekend with ceremonies, a downtown parade, discounts and freebies for veterans. The most notable event was the United States Military Veterans Parade, which took place at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11. The parade began in 2000 after Delia Guajardo began organizing the event in 1999. Since then, it has grown and become an annual tradition.
