Chloe Williams

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 a north side shooting to San Antonio being ranked among the best markets for first time home-owners. 

Man left dead after shooting at Northside Walmart

A man was shot dead after an attempted carjacking on the Northside within the 12600 block of Blanco Road. The incident occurred at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 7. Upon arrival at the scene, the police announced the 53-year-old dead from gunshot wounds, in what seemed to be the aftermath of an attempted carjacking. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown vehicle and is currently being looked for by SAPD.

Pacific cold front to sweep through San Antonio

Starting overnight on Saturday, April 6, a Pacific cold front moved through the Hill Country, bringing back cold weather and lowering the humidity. This front brought San Antonio to 60-degree low temperatures and 80-degree high temperatures, alongside the dry air. 

Following the cold front, a low-pressure system passed through starting on Monday. This brought moisture back into the air, raising the humidity. Alongside this, the pressure system is set to bring more cloud coverage and a higher chance of precipitation throughout the week. 

San Antonio housing market ranked for first-time buyers

Zillow has ranked San Antonio among the best housing markets for first-time buyers in the U.S. again. San Antonio has been ranked as the seventh best in the U.S. by the online real estate marketplace. Zillow marked 33% of homes in San Antonio as “affordable,” meaning that they cost less than 30% of a family’s monthly income to purchase or rent. This follows San Antonio being ranked as the third best market for first-time buyers by Creditnews Research earlier this year.
