Freddy Krueger shooting; accident kills 4; new name in presidential headlines


SAN ANTONIO – Get in the know, San Antonio. Here are the stories that impact you and some you’ll be talking about at the water cooler this week.


Julian Castro, the secretary for Housing and Urban Development, may be subpoenaed to testify about inspections for HUD-assisted facilities Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina said Wednesday. || The Kerrville Fire Marshal’s Office said an investigation into a fire that left a 10-year-old boy severely injured on Oct. 2 has concluded. || The San Antonio Fire Department confirmed to The Defenders Wednesday that Assistant Chief Joe Jones has been placed on administrative leave. The spokesperson said the department's decision is unrelated to the August removal of six cadets from the training academy.


Volunteers on Monday night packed up items used for the annual Good News pumpkin patch, only to find those items were missing the next morning. "The locks were here on this hinge. It looks like it was cut with a torch," said Larry Jackson, a pumpkin patch committee member. || After a day of tweeting several pro-Trump polls, the Texas agriculture commissioner appeared to have sent a tweet calling Hillary Clinton an offensive term used to demean and belittle woman. || Video of an Oct. 17 bus crash shows how a VIA bus ended up in a Southwest Side home, as well as a suspicious departure from the scene. The video offers multiple angles of the crash at the intersection of Haven Valley and Spur Valley.


The Judson Independent School District announced Monday night that three kids have been arrested with connection to vandalism at an elementary school. When teachers arrived at Spring Meadows Elementary School on Monday morning they found classrooms covered in spray paint, watercolors, honey and flour. || Investigators released new information Monday relating to the death of a Texas State University student over the weekend. Jordin Taylor, 20, was found dead Saturday morning under a bus that had broken down the night before. || For millions of kids across the country Monday night is filled with costumes and candy, fun time with neighborhood friends and the chance to say up a little past bedtime. But for some kids, a hospital stay means that’s just not possible. So San Antonio Police Department SWAT and San Antonio Fire Department Rescue Team members stepped in to help.


Halloween horror

San Antonio police are searching for two people involved in a Northwest side shooting where five people were shot. Police said one of the suspects was wearing a Freddy Krueger costume at the time of the shooting.


Fatal collision

Four people were killed in a wrong-way crash on the South Side late Friday night. The driver of the SUV crashed head-on with an oncoming 18-wheeler, police said. The crash caused an explosion and fire, killing four people in the SUV.


October surprise

Suddenly, the figure at the center of the 2016 presidential race isn't even running for office. James Comey's revelation Friday that the bureau is reviewing newly discovered emails that might be linked to Hillary Clinton's private server made the FBI director's unusual actions the focus on Sunday news programs and on the campaign trail. President Barack Obama told a group of volunteers for Clinton on Sunday to remain focused on electing the Democrat, despite what he called "noise and distractions" in the campaign's final stretch.


Spurs win

Kawhi Leonard scored 14 of his 27 points in the final 6:04, doing so with a bandage under his right eye and helping the San Antonio Spurs hold off the Miami Heat 106-99 on Sunday night to remain unbeaten. At 4-0 they are the only unbeaten team left in the NBA


No leg to stand on

Dozens of St. Mary’s University students traveled to Illinois to ask the state to give them an artifact it has had for the last 169 years — Gen. Antonio Santa Anna’s fake leg. The prosthetic has been at a military museum, but the students think it should be sent back to Mexico. The Illinois National Guard said that’s not going to happen.
