  • Father of 4-year-old killed in drive-by shooting arrested on federal drug chargesFather of 4-year-old killed in drive-by shooting arrested on federal drug charges

    Nearly four months after a woman lost her 4-year-old son in an alleged gang-related drive-by shooting, her husband was arrested on federal drug-trafficking charges that tie him to another gang.Cyntwanisha Whitley's husband's alleged gang is responsible for a shooting on July 19 that was answered with gunfire at the Whitleys' home and took the life of 4-year-old Dearlvion Whitley."I can't say that he's not affiliated with a gang, because he was," Cyntwanisha Whitley said. "That's not the man he is now." RELATED: 4-year-old boy killed, mother wounded in drive-by shooting Whitley's husband was one of nine men arrested Friday by FBI agents and was charged with conspiracy to distribute more than 28 grams of crack cocaine. "If it's there and it's their proof that they have, then I'm fine with that," she said. "Do what you gotta do. I'm not going to stop you from charging my son's father with his case." While Whitley doesn't shy away from her husband's past, she said he wasn't involved in a feud between his group and another that ended in the pair of shootings July 19. RELATED: Mother whose child killed in drive-by seeks justice in son's death "When all of these issues were going on between these two groups, he was one of the ones that was constantly (saying), 'Y'all just leave it alone. Let it go. Y'all sell over here. Let 'em sell over there. Let it go,'" Whitley said. Ten days after the shooting, Charles Lee Bethany, 36, was arrested on similar drug-trafficking charges after a raid at a home in the 600 block of J Street. Surveillance video from the home showed several men returning to the home with a rifle and pistol just minutes after the fatal shooting of Dearlvion in the 200 block of Hub Street. Neither Bethany nor other associates arrested have been charged with the child's murder. "I'm not going to accuse someone of something they didn't do until I have the proof," Whitley said. "Then I'll be the one to say the bastard got what he deserved. The coward got what he deserved." Dearlvion's murder case remains an open investigation.

  • Seniors, disabled residents forced to evacuate during high-rise apartment fireSeniors, disabled residents forced to evacuate during high-rise apartment fire

    Many seniors and disabled people were forced to evacuate their homes after a high-rise fire on Fair Avenue.The fire happened at the Fair Avenue Apartments complex on Fair Avenue, just east of South New Braunfels Avenue.The fire was contained to one unit. The person who lives there was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.After the fire was extinguished, crews went unit by unit to make sure it was safe. Residents waited outside for hours, visibly shaken."I couldn't see my exit door," said Clyde Wilson, who was in his seventh-floor apartment when a neighbor told him there was a fire next door. "You couldn't see in front of your face. You could smell rubber burning, plastic, that's what made the smoke so toxic. It's still in my nose."Wilson's neighbor needed medical attention right away."He was lying flat on the balcony," Wilson said.Wilson got out safely and told firefighters where to find the injured man, who was then taken to the hospital with priority one injuries.There are 11 floors and more than 200 units in the building."The thing is a lot of people cannot walk. They need wheelchairs," said Daniel Gonzalez."In this situation, we left a lot of people above the fire. Ninth, eighth floor, we didn't have to move them, but others we did have to physically move," San Antonio fire Chief Charles Hood said.At least 25 fire engines responded in what could have been a significant fire."This building doesn't have sprinklers," Hood said.The chief said the Fire Department is pushing for all high rises to get sprinkler systems. The complex was built before it was required to have them,Residents said they have a lot of fire alarms that go off often, but it's rarely ever serious.

  • Higher gas prices won't keep Texans from Thanksgiving travelingHigher gas prices won't keep Texans from Thanksgiving traveling

    AAA Texas said 3.9 million Texans will travel 50 miles or more from home for Thanksgiving despite higher gas prices from a year ago.The association survey found San Antonio had the cheapest gasoline in Texas this week at an average of $2.19 per gallon, compared to $1.89 a year ago. More flights available for Thanksgiving travel at SA Int'l Airport AAA Texas spokesman Daniel Armbruster said heavy demand in the fall and the lingering effects of Hurricane Harvey kept gasoline prices from falling as much than usual.But current prices won't keep Texans from hitting the road."More people have confidence in the economy. They have more money to spend, and they are going to spend it on traveling," AAA Texas spokesman Daniel Armbruster said. Phone companies get new tools to block spam calls Sharon Skinner-Reynolds said spending a little extra for gas won't keep her from visiting relatives in Georgetown."I think family matters more than gas prices," she said.

  • 'The Worry Tree' helps grieving children cope with loss'The Worry Tree' helps grieving children cope with loss

    Blanketed with brightly colored index cards, "The Worry Tree" is one way for grieving children to cope with loss, said Marian Sokol, executive director of the Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas.Handwritten by each child, some read, "I'm worried about somebody else dying." "Am I ever safe?" And "I'm worried about what people think of me."Sokol said expressing themselves in writing helps the children to deal with their situations. She said sudden deaths, such as that of 6-year-old Eloy Mitchell and his grandmother in a Wednesday night house fire, are difficult to understand at any age.For children such as Eloy's first-grade classmates, Sokol suggested offering an explanation that is age appropriate.Sokol praised their teacher for encouraging them to draw simple, heartfelt sympathy cards for his family. She said it helps them to understand that although the person they loved cannot respond, "They can still convey those feelings and memories."Sokol said senseless killings, such as the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, are the hardest to explain."The best we can do is to be honest with the child in simple words," she said. "Let them know they're safe and we're there for them if they want to cry."Sokol said it's easier for adults to convey their feelings by talking to others, but children often can't."But they can tell you where it hurts if it's a tummy ache or a headache. They can tell you if you give them time," Sokol said.She said once adults understand why children also may have trouble sleeping or focusing on school work, "Then we can start to talk with them and most of all listen to them."The Children's Bereavement Center offers free services to a wide range of ages, from 3 to 24, and their guardians.It's also made its counselors available to children and students affected by the Sutherland Springs tragedy.

  • Nonprofit hit hard after thieves target community center twiceNonprofit hit hard after thieves target community center twice

    A nonprofit is working hard to help a community center targeted by criminals for the second time.The Get Up Community Center near Binz-Engleman Road and I-35 was burglarized a little over a month ago. Thieves took off with the mobile kitchen that feeds about 50,000 people a year. "It's a very large, self-contained kitchen, and it's just been upgraded. We spent in the neighborhood of about $25,000 to upgrade it," said Robert Cockfield, with Get Up Community Center.Around 6 p.m. Thursday, Cockfield said he found the gate at the center closed and the mobile kitchen was gone.The thieves didn't cut through the fence. They just disabled the latch, and part of it was left behind.Police reports state that on Oct. 4, thieves stole $18,400 worth of technology from the center and shattered its front door."We're trying to recover to get that technology center back up by January, so we can start courses and classes," Cockfield said.The community center was created in 2007 to serve the city's northeast corridor."Food pantry, seniors program, STREAM -- which is science technology reading, engineering, arts and math -- and a latchkey after-school program," Cockfield said.Criminals have again made it difficult for Cockfield to offer the majority of those services right before the holidays."This here is a lifeline of what we do every week," Cockfield said.Cockfield hopes the public will speak up if they see the mobile kitchen and report it to police.

  • 23 children welcomed into forever families during mass adoption ceremony23 children welcomed into forever families during mass adoption ceremony

    Anyone in the jury room of the Bexar County Courthouse on Friday could feel the joy and see the miles-wide smiles as the adoptions of 23 children became official in a mass adoption ceremony. Among them was a boy 17 years old -- an age at which officials say is uncommon to be adopted. But for Lacey and Melvin Bartlett, Michael Reser was the perfect fit. "He's officially and forevermore a part of our family," Lacey Bartlett said. "Its life-changing."At first, Reser wasn't sure he wanted to be adopted. In fact, a family was interested in adopting him last year, but he declined. Reser then met the Bartletts and their son, Jimmy. "I fell in love with their family, and I met Jimmy later on on a visit and would love to be his bigger brother," Reser said. Eighteen children and their new families gathered to hear a judge call their name and say, "The adoption is granted."As each of the 18 names was called, the crowd, including 13-month-old Carlos Longoria, cheered and applauded. "We didn't change his life. He changed ours," said Alma Longoria, who, along with her husband, Serapio, officially adopted Carlos. "We got a call and they told us that there was a three-week-old baby ready for a home, and we said, 'Yes,'" Longoria said. "And he showed up at our doorstep at 8 p.m. We've loved him ever since."Babies, toddlers and teenagers all belong to a family now, after the words "The adoption is granted.""He's staying with us forever," Longoria said. "He completed us," Lacey Bartlett said. November is National Adoption Month. For more information about how to foster or adopt a child, click here.

    Floresville South Elementary kindergarten teachers organized a cupcake fundraiser for a kindergartener who suffered five gunshot wounds and lost three family members in the Sutherland Springs church shooting.On Thursday, students, parents and community members brought in cupcakes by the dozens -- all for 5-year-old Ryland Ward. RELATED: Grandmother loses 2 grandchildren, daughter-in-law in Texas church shooting Community donations were bolstered by a contribution from H-E-B, who donated two car loads full of cupcakes, cookies, muffins and cakes -- many of them made by bakers who were off the clock. The baked goods sold fast, when a parent brought $930 one dollar bills so that every student could purchase a cupcake. In addition to the $930 donation, parents, businesses and community members contributed funds so that any student who didn't have a dollar could enjoy a cupcake. Texas Church Shooting: Mother killed while trying to protect children from gunfire The Wilson County Sheriff's Office also stopped by to purchase cupcakes. A post on the Floresville ISD Facebook page said the success of the cupcake sale was a testament to the strength of the community and that it gave the community hope in light of the tragic shooting. Ryland lost his mother, JoAnn Ward, and his two sisters, Brooke Ward, 5, and Emily Garza, 7. His mother shielded them from gunfire and died protecting her children.

  • NEC Prevention: Mom's Own Milk is Liquid GoldNEC Prevention: Mom's Own Milk is Liquid Gold

    Most moms have heard the saying that breast milk is best, but for premature infants, it just might be a lifesaver. Breast milk is proving to be a powerful weapon against the most common intestinal disease that threatens the lives of these fragile infants. And the sooner breast milk is started the better.Paxton Kulp surprised everyone when he arrived eleven and a half weeks before his due date. Then came another surprise. Paxton developed an intestinal disease common in premature and low birth weight infants called Necrotizing Enterocolitis or NEC for short. "In our research, we had seen just how dire it can be for little ones and so, when it was an official diagnosis, it was very, very devastating," Kulp stated.What causes NEC is unknown, but doctors do know breast milk is protective. So a team led by Dr. Michelle Feinberg launched a NEC prevention initiative at their neo-natal intensive care unit. The three key parts: early use of breast milk, the addition of probiotics and this state of the art prep room where specially trained techs process and prepare breast milk for each baby."They bring those prepared feedings back to the room to again store in the milk fridge for the nurses to then administer to the babies around the clock," explained Michelle Feinberg, MD, Neonatologist, Saint Joseph Hospital.By 2013, the hospital's incidence of NEC dropped from the national average of four percent to less than half of a percent … and has stayed there. The Kulps were lucky; Paxton's case was mild. He's fully recovered, healthy and happy. Dr. Feinberg says commercial infant formula is to be avoided when feeding fragile, premature infants. If a mom doesn't produce enough breast milk to feed her premature baby, it is supplemented with donor breast milk from approved volunteer donors who participate in a donor breast milk program.Contributors to this news report include: Field Producer, Irene Maher; Joe Mahoney, Videographer; Cyndy McGrath, Supervising Producer; Gabriella Battistiol, Assistant Producer; Roque Correa, Editor.To receive a free weekly e-mail on Medical Breakthroughs from Ivanhoe, sign up at: http://www.ivanhoe.com/ftk

    The 20-year-old undocumented immigrant who's been held in a South Texas detention center for a month (despite not being charged with a crime) was released on bail Friday. But Felipe Abonza-Lopez's detention visit has apparently cost him his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status — a work permit protecting him from deportation that wasn't set to expire until 2019. It's common for the federal government to pull a person's DACA status if they've been convicted of a crime — but it seems there have been no charges filed against Abonza-Lopez. The San Marcos man was originally picked up by law enforcement on October 12, when a Uvalde County deputy pulled over a car that he was a passenger in.…

Texas ranks as the 43rd most flown-over state, according to a report by ChampionTraveler that determined the ratio of flyover flights to destination flights over the past 12 months. That means more flights are stopping within the state's borders than just passing over.

Police said the 12-year-old was walking to school when the child stopped at the convenience store on West Mariposa Drive, just north of downtown. The child then said Ahmad asked him to help him find his keys in the back, and that's where the alleged assault happened, police said."I think we as parents need to talk to them more. 'Who's talking to you? What are they telling you? Don't ever go with a stranger somewhere where you aren't comfortable,'" said Isabel Corona, a mother of three. The child then went back home and called his parents, who then called police.San Antonio police Officer Douglas Greene said along with talking to children, parents and children can also take safety measures to protect themselves."We always try and encourage kids to walk together in groups. Try not to be alone. There is also a lot of technology these days for parents to track their kids and have instant communication with their kids, so we highly encourage people to invest in (them)," Greene said.Officers are trying to determine if there are any other people Ahmad may have victimized.

    In the aftermath of mass shootings at Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas, K-9 handlers say it's more important than ever to keep their four-legged crime fighters sharp.Units from various law enforcement agencies, some from as far as Round Rock, participated in a joint training exercise Tuesday at Retama Park.For canines like Bingo, a 3-year-old German shorthaired pointer, exercise equals recreation. K-9 Comfort Dogs Report for Duty in Texas: 'They Don't Judge' "He's always excited. This never stops," said his handler Ron Miller, of the Federal Protective Service, as Bingo jumped and walked in a circle nonstop. "It's just play time. Whenever he's out of the truck, whenever he's running around, it's nothing but hide-and-seek." But the training exercises are serious business. Bingo usually keeps federal buildings around San Antonio safe, but on Tuesday he was practicing clearing a car of dangerous objects and searching luggage for an ingredient used to make an explosive.The quarterly joint exercise attended by the 27 teams helps them to always be ready."(The) reality is, there might be an IED (improvised explosive device), there might be a car bomb that (a person has) brought in and introduced into the scene, and that's where we come in and try to make that safe," said Sgt. Andres Lopez of the San Antonio Airport Police Department K-9 unit. K-9 team patrols hallways, housing units of Bexar County Jail The units took part in six scenarios, ranging from clearing the floor of a building to checking an unattended bag in a public place.Lopez's dog, 11-year-old Cora, is about to retire after seven years on the job. But she still takes time to practice."(You) can't afford to be wrong, not even one time," Lopez said.

  • Church leaders talk security in wake of Sutherland Springs tragedyChurch leaders talk security in wake of Sutherland Springs tragedy

    Leaders from churches across the city gathered Tuesday morning at Castle Hills Church to hear local law enforcement officials talk about ways they can protect their congregations in the wake of the shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs that left 26 people dead. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said the reality is that most mass shootings cannot be prevented. "These types of incidents are not preventable if we don't have intelligence that they're going to happen or something is brewing," McManus said. Study: U.S. leads the nations in mass shootings In the case of Sutherland Springs and the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert several weeks earlier, there was no such information. "All we can do is be prayed up, have security on-site, be prepared to handle a situation and diffuse it as quickly as possible if it should happen," said Arthur Stork, owner of Choice Security which works for New Life Christian Center. While McManus' message was honest about the likelihood of preventing an attack, he said steps can be taken to minimize risk. "The bulk of that security needs to really take place outside the venue, because once a person gets inside, it's too late," McManus said after playing a video showing the crowd tips on what to do if a shooter enters the workplace. K-9 teams sharpen skills at joint training exercise Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar and District Attorney Nico LaHood also addressed the group. "I think the message today is that we need to be diligent, not paranoid," LaHood said. "We don't want to live a life of paranoia, or else the evil wins out."Speakers during Tuesday's event talked about how Christians have been targets of violence and persecution for years and that the risk of mass shootings will not shake their faith. Remembering the Texas church shooting victims "I cannot guarantee your safety, ladies and gentleman. But the one thing I can speak to is your security," said Dr. Ed Newton, lead pastor of Community Bible Church. "And I'm not talking about your flesh. I'm talking about your soul."The law enforcement representatives on hand offered to host town hall meetings at churches whose leadership was interested and help each congregation come up with a security plan specific to its own building and sanctuary.

  • Bexar County deputies volunteer to be shocked while earning Taser certificationBexar County deputies volunteer to be shocked while earning Taser certification

    In 2016, Bexar County Deputies used their Taser weapons 67 times while detention officers deployed their Tasers 57 times inside the county jail. BCSO deputies to appear on 'COPS' TV show in 2018 Through October of this year, deputies on the streets have used their Tasers 61 times while detention officers used theirs 29 times, according to numbers provided by the Bexar County Sheriff's office. Before deputies are allowed to carry a Taser, they must complete a daylong training class that involves time spent in a classroom and time spent going through a variety of scenarios that tests the deputies skills and decision making. Each deputy authorized to carry a Taser on duty must complete the same course every year. As part of the certification class, several deputies volunteer to feel the effects of the weapon. "We encourage them to take a voluntary exposure so that way they can know what it feels like," said Deputy George Barrera Jr., an instructor at BCSO's training academy. "So that they know exactly what they're doing to the person that they're applying it on as well." Deputy uses bodybuilding to recover from on-duty crash that nearly took life At a recent training class, five deputies volunteered to be shocked as their fellow deputies looked on. When the weapon is used correctly, it creates what's known as neuromuscular incapacitation, or NMI. The electricity causes a person's body to stiffen for the five-second duration of the charge. Deputies call it "taking a ride." "He can't move but you and I can move him freely," Barrera said, as a deputy was being shocked. "So what that means is when they're taking the ride and they're under power, you and I can apply cuffs while he's taking the ride. There will be no resistance on their part because they are fighting within themselves. Notice how he's stiff as a board, that is full NMI, he's taking a ride. Once it's over, the NMI is finished and his body goes limp." The deputies in training look on as their fellow classmates are shocked in a variety of ways; some standing, some while lying on the ground. They also see what happens when one of the probes fired from the weapon misses its mark. When that happens, the Taser user must move closer to the subject and make contact with the weapon on the subject's body to obtain NMI, which is known as drive stun mode. "Notice, I didn't do it flush on his body. I did it at an angle and I began to rock it," Berrera told the class. "As I began to rock it there was one point where he stiffened up and this Taser got very quiet. That's what you're looking for, a quiet pulsing and a stiffening of the body. That's NMI." In addition to seeing the Taser used first hand, deputies also run through several scenarios where they must decide whether to use deadly force or less than lethal force. One of the scenarios involves clearing a home where a hostage is being held and two suspects are inside. The deputy shoots the suspect holding a knife on the hostage but resorts to his Taser when the other suspect, who is unarmed, refuses to comply with his orders. Sheriff wants to rein in deputies who chase fleeing suspects "Taser is not a substitute for deadly force. So if they're displaying deadly force, we are not training our guys to respond with less than lethal force," Barrera said. "Let's say the person has a knife and they're running at you. That's not the ideal situation for a Taser deployment because if you decide to deploy and only one probe hits or you miss all together, now you're sitting with a Taser in your hand and a person assaulting you with a knife." By going through the scenarios, deputies learn to quickly decide which weapon to draw and how to seamlessly switch from one to another. To avoid confusion and possibly grabbing the wrong weapon for the situation, deputies are taught to use their non-dominate hand when drawing the Taser. "We try to make it innate for them. That any time they transition it becomes muscle memory and so as they transition, it's instant and it's introducing just a little bit of stress to elevate the heart rate because we will never rise to the occasion but rather we will always sink to our level of training," Barrera said. While the Taser is classified as a 'less than lethal' weapon, they have been known to contribute to deaths on some suspects. While the maker of the weapon suggests users not deliver more than three 5 second shocks on a suspect, BCSO does not specify how many times a deputy should use the device but instead trains deputies to change tactics if it's not working. "If you have a tool on your tool belt, or if you have something at your disposal, a less than lethal, and you use it, you use it once, twice, maybe three times, it's time to move onto something else," Barrera said. "In my experience, 75 percent of the time, just displaying it and arming it, not even using it, you'll gain compliance. As soon as they see the laser, as soon as they see the flashlight 75 percent will give up." While it's not ideal for every situation, having a Taser at their disposal gives deputies another option to reach for. "Taser has it's place in law enforcement but it has to be used at the right time and you have to have the right presence of mind.

  • BCSO deputies to check in on registered sex offenders on HalloweenBCSO deputies to check in on registered sex offenders on Halloween

    Bexar County Sheriff's Office deputies will be busy Tuesday night checking in on registered sex offenders across the county.There are more than 560 sex offenders living in the county and those on probation or parole will be required to check in at the Department of Public Safety office on Halloween.Deputy John Kjendalen is one of two sex offender registration officers. He works 40 hours a week going to neighborhoods to randomly drop in on offenders or having them drop by his office. He can see anywhere from six to 18 a day.On Tuesday evening, he and an extra team of three or four deputies will hit the streets and go from door-to-door."We go out to knock on doors to verity the residence of where our offenders are registered to be living," he said, noting that the checks will be random.They will do as many checks as they can.State guidelines do not prohibit sex offenders who are not on probation or parole from decorating their homes or even handing out candy.That's why Kjendalen urges parents to do their homework and check the neighborhoods in which their kids will be trick-or-treating. "There are areas where there are a lot. Some areas there are a few. They're spread out all over the county, everywhere," he explained.The state website allows people to check for sex offenders by address and by ZIP code.

  • Mother of murdered 4-year-old glad extra DPS troopers sent to combat crimeMother of murdered 4-year-old glad extra DPS troopers sent to combat crime

    It was music to a mourning mother's ears: more help is on the way.The spike in San Antonio's violent crimes became so noticeable, the state decided to intervene. Governor Greg Abbott doubled the number of DPS troopers on San Antonio Police Department's Violent Crimes Task Force.The news pulled a positive reaction out of the mother of a 4-year-old De-earlvion Whitley, who shot and killed on the East Side. His murder still unsolved. DPS to provide more resources to help SAPD fight violent crimes Every day for three months, Cyntwanisha Whitley relives the worst day of her life. "I call them cowards," she said about the person or people who killed her son. "Right now I have no peace." Drive-by shooters killed De-earlvion in July, riddling their Hub Street home with bullets. Then, two weeks ago a 3- and 7-year-old were shot on the East Side while playing in front of their home on E. Commerce Street. "It 100 percent has grabbed their attention because it's innocent kids, three, four, seven, 10. It's ridiculous," Whitley said. Whitley believes cases like hers spurred Abbott to send more state troopers to help curb San Antonio's gang violence. "It's bringing back my hope," she said. About 15 more DPS troopers will join the roughly 15 that already work on SAPD's Violent Crimes Task Force. Chief McManus created the task force at the end of 2016, including other agencies like the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and the Department of Homeland Security. Since January there have been 4,100 arrests, including more than 440 gang members. Police Chief William McManus didn't ask the governor for more state troopers but he's welcoming any extra help which will add resources like aircraft, K-9s and analysts. "I've seen more assistance from outside agencies than I have ever before," he said at a press conference Monday. "I notice it. I see it. I see them riding every day and it has made a change," Whitley said about the recent increased police presence. Still, Whitley knows if her community doesn't cooperate, extra officers may not be able to make a difference. "People know what happened but they're scared to speak because they don't know what may happen with them," she said. "I used to be the mother where, I used to close my door too. I don't have nothing to say. Nope, didn't see nothing didn't hear nothing, until this happened. This is what woke me up. Even if it's just a little it may help. We need to say something." She believes if everyone spoke up together, change might be possible. She sees no other choice until the innocent children of San Antonio are safe. "You don't want it to someday you're standing in these shoes. You have to feel this pain, this hurt, because it's not easy," she said, holding onto her two other sons. Whitley and other East Side advocates agree that any new officers added to the task force are only helping if they engage in the community and build the trust. They also said any new push for change needs to continue long term so criminals get the message.
