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 a fatal shooting to two new pedestrian bridges being constructed for San Antonio’s Pearl district.

Fatal shooting after forced entry

Late Saturday, Mar. 30, a man was found shot outside of a home on the 3300 block of Martin Luther King Drive. It is believed the suspect attempted to enter the residence and assault the homeowner. Meanwhile, it is currently unknown what events preceded the shooting, but the man who fired the shots has been questioned. It has been confirmed that multiple shots were fired, a few entering other homes, but no one else was injured.

Two new pedestrian bridges constructed for Pearl district 

San Antonio’s Pearl district can expect two new pedestrian bridges that will connect the existing parts of the Pearl to some of the new developments across downtown San Antonio. Both bridges aim to enhance the walkability of the downtown dining and shopping stores near the  Pearl. The first bridge will connect the Pearl’s Hotel Emma and Cellars apartment building to a parking lot across the street, and the second bridge will connect Pullman Market to the developing Cooper Row apartment building.
