The location of a deadly officer-involved shooting Friday, Chacho's and Chalucci's, has long list of police presence requests since the beginning of 2013.

Since Jan. 5, 2013 there have been more than 130 calls for police service at Chachos and Chalucci's on Perrin Beitel near I-410.

The most recent, an officer-involved shooting early Friday morning. The shooting left 23-year-old Marquise Jones dead. The officer, six-year veteran Robert Encina, was placed on administrative duty during the investigation.

People who frequent the restaurant or live nearby had mixed emotions about the number of calls.

"I love the place I think its very fun. You can go in have drinks socialize and the times I've been there, there have been no problems," said Cedrick Toles.

The calls range from fights, assaults, thefts and shootings.

"I don't really go there now because I've seen police officers there so I try to stay away from it," Elias Moore said.

Aaron Sewell has lived in the area on and off for years. He believes the high volume of calls stems from the restaurant being open 24 hours.

"It depends on the time I would think. I think the weekends, late night or most the times is when something has happened but during the day I've never encountered anything," said Sewell.

KSAT reached out to the restaurant's management, but they declined to comment. KSAT also reached out to their corporate office but didn't get an answer.
