Homicide on the East Bluff

Another clear example of why Special Service District monies should be applied to public safety rather than the low income rental program that Councilman Riggenbach is pushing on the neighborhood.

Thursday evening residents got the rare opportunity to speak with Councilman Riggenbach and Chief of Police Jerry Mitchell about crime in the East Bluff. And then this...

Police are investigating the death of a man found shot in the back yard of an East Bluff house late Thursday.

The victim was found about 10:23 p.m. in the yard of a house in the 400 block of East Republic Street. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a news release from the Police Department.

Earlier in the evening, about 8:48 p.m., a ShotSpotter gunfire detection alert summoned officers to the same block on Republic. However, at the time, police found nothing that would indicate a crime scene.
