The New Braunfels Police Department is continuing to investigate two incidents which occurred over the holiday weekend.
Police are seeking more information in the shooting of a 21-year-old New Braunfels man that occurred just after midnight Saturday, said Detective John Villarreal.
The incident occurred at a residence near Hidalgo and Katy.
“We believe at this time that it was self-inflicted but are still investigating," Villarreal said.
Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the man to Eikel Park where he was transferred to a helicopter ambulance for transport to Medical Center Hospital in San Antonio.
EMS reports indicated that the man suffered “a single gunshot wound to the right side of his head with no apparent exit wound.”
He was still alive Tuesday, Villarreal said.
Police are also continuing to investigate a stabbing incident that occurred just before I am. Sunday, Villarreal said.
Two men were wounded in a fight at a bar near West San Antonio and Live Oak Avenue, he said.
A 44-year-old San Marcos man and a 29-year-old New Braunfels man were transported to McKenna Memorial Hospital for treatment. The San Marcos man sustained stab wounds, Villarreal said.
Police plan to further question witnesses in both cases, he said.
Hearing tonight on redrawing NBISD districts
By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer
The New Braunfels Independent School District Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing tonight on plans for redrawing voting district boundaries.
Trustees will discuss and receive public input on the proposed redistricting plan for the school district, said Superintendent Charles R. Bradberry.
Tentative plans have been drawn up by the Oibson Research Group, a
San' Antonio consultant hired to assure the district meets U.S. Justice Department requirements. Those include that the plan guarantee minority representation and consistent population size between voting districts.
Maps showing the proposed plan have been available for public inspection and review at the NBISD central office, Bradberry said.
The district must redraw district boundaries based on census data each IO years.
“You have an obligation under the Education Code and the United States Constitution to keep your singlemember district boundaries of approximately equal population density," said Cobby Caputo, attorney for NBISD. “The Department of Justice will also look at the racial composition of the districts."
After hearings are held and a final plan is approved, it will be submitted to the Justice Department for approval.
In 1983, a lawsuit was filed by citi
zens to enhance minority representation in the districts. Districts one and four are the districts agreed upon to be preserved as predominantly Hispanic in ‘die 1983 agreement, Bradberry said.
A minority district must be between 65 and 75 percent minority according to Justice Department guidelines, Caputo said.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the NBISD Education Center. All interested citizens are invited to attend.
Recovery of stolen property clears burglaries
By ROBERT 8TEWART Staff Writer
At least two burglaries involving three runaway juveniles and one 18-year-old were cleared with the recovery of a large amount of property from a campsite near Rebecca Springs in West Comal County, said Chief Deputy Elwood Hoherz of the Comal County Sheriffs Department.
“A female juvenile was arrested and released to her parents," Hoherz
The 18-year-old turned himself in to the Selma Police Department, and some property from the burglaries has already been returned to the owners, he said. The other two juveniles are being sought for questioning.
The Comal County Sheriff’s Department has been working with the Selma Police Department on the case because the runaways were from Selma, Hoherz said.
Detective James Emory, who is investigating the case, reports that more than $1,000 in property was recovered, including a color television, an outboard boat motor, welding equipment, a chainsaw and a ,22-ca-liber magnum rifle. Deputy Rick Poindexter assisted in the investigation.
The female juvenile led officers to
the area of the campsite, Hoherz said.
“Apparently the subjects were stealing what they needed to survive at the campsite," Emory said.
Hoherz added that some items were probably taken for resale, as well. Some pawn tickets were confiscated, he said.
