Concerned Resident:
My daughter, and I shop at that Walmart at list once a week. After this horrible tragedy (A MURDER) we will definitely be hesitant to go alone. I hope Walmart is planning to hire security officers for the protection of ALL shoppers. We are praying for the family. How tragic, to make matters worst on Easter Sunday when all families come together!!!!!

My cousin was the one that died from this shoting. I think this shooting was totally stupid and the criminals who did this should have death penalty or life in prison for this evil,wicked crime. I am furious about this.

Dont blame walmart, NO Im not an employee, these murderers ambushed this poor kid there, they all agreed to meet there to look at buying his rims, this could have taken place at McD's, Pizza Hut, Mobile Station, anywhere along 78. Its funny how society doesnt want cameras because they say "big brother" is watching, but then when some tragic event takes place, they want to blame establishments for not having monitoring systems. Ah hm Remember that poor girl who was getting off of her shift at wally world in west texas and as she got into her green truck some ex marine ran across the parking lot, forced her into her vehicle, killed her then drove to AZ? Sure it was all caught on Video, did that save her having cameras? HELL NO. Were these thugs in Converse caught regardless, HELL YES.

If you feel safe because some old man is sitting in his lil cart or there are some cameras scanning the parking lot, you have a FALSE sense of security. These things only are utilized in the courtroom as evidence while youre at the morgue.

Regardless of all that, my feelings go out to the family of the victim and his girlfriend, it was a senseless crime. I can only hope there will be 2 convictions and no plea bargain for testimony.

LMAO....this is because that area is an expansion of the East side. That entire area from Judson HS all the way to Kirby is becoming a "ghetto". Just so you know, I lived in Kirby for 10 years until we moved 2 years ago. Kirby wasn't bad, but OBVIOUSLY getting slowly worse. The Sunrise subdivision was always the "ghetto" hood over there. Now it's slowly turning into that in all the subdivisions up and down FM78.

It should be no surprise that Wal-Mart had a shooting in it's parking lot. That's what makes up a good percentage of the residents in that area. It won't be long before the entire area will be just like "The Glen" subdivision. If you don't know what "The Glen" is, it's the city's premiere "worst neighborhood" currently.

I moved away from this area because years ago I lived in the "worst neighborhood" -back in the mid and late 80s- Indian Creek. It wasn't hard to recognize what was happening to the area while living in Kirby. It was time to move so my kids wouldn't have to grow up with all the street crap I did.

I don't want to bring up the race issue, but I'M GONNA ANYWAY,LOL! Black communities, just like hispanic ones, always end up like "ghettos". East Side. West Side. South Side. What is MOSTLY associated with these areas and WHY do people need to use caution going into most subdivisions in these areas? Because they're flipping dangerous, that's why! LMAO!

If you live in any of the neighborhoods that run up and down and beside FM78, consider yourself living in the "hood". Good luck. If you keep living there, you WILL need it.

Okay, I can see why certain individuals would bring up "race"; however, most people know it has nothing to do with race but it does with things such as "section 8 housing" which I believe is provided all along FM 1976 on the side of The Glen. The cheaper it is to live there, the more trash that will move in and it's not fair to people like me who are working long hours at a stressful job to make sure they live in an above average residential area so their kids can stay away from the poor kids that are raised by trashy parents passing on their "food stamp" ways. My son has come home from school and told me things he has heard some of the other kids say and a couple of them happen to live in a trailer park in between 2 very nice subdivisions. Unfortunately, it falls on the government allowing the trash to live among hard working individuals who pay over 1000 to live somewhere nice for their kids to have a decent upbringing AWAY FROM THE TRASH. I don't go to that Wal-Mart even though it happens to be VERY close to me because of all the rude filth that walks in and out of there. Yes, I agree, this area is becoming "ghetto" like and unfortunately, I will have to move so that my son does not grow up thinking that it's normal to walk around looking like a piece of crap thug wanna be, whether they be white, hispanic, asian or black.

my husband and i recently bought a house in SUNRISE,,and by no means is it the ghetto,we bought our house fairly cheap, we fixed it up, and we keep a good eye on the "HOOD",,yes there is white trash everywhere you go, but as long as you keep watch over your nextdoor neighbor and the entire area, will this place or any other place ever become safe, we make it a pont to eyeball and wave at everyone, this gives them heads-up that someone has seen them,,,so bashing wal-mart, or individual neighborhoods is not the answer, the answer is to be aware of your surroundings, and stand your ground, and walk with your head up, the home owners of SUNRISE WILL TAKE BACK THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD!!!! I gaurantee it..

I don't know what Sunrise has to do with this murder. We're located 5 miles away from that Walmart, we're not in the same city and there are multiple other neighborhoods closer to that store such as Northampton (what no one to badmouth Northampton??). It's amazing how people love smearing the name of some random area just for the fun of it. Being compared to the Glen is the most preposterous thing I have ever heard or read! Only people who have no clue of what they're talking about can actually think that. To those who think they're so much better than us look carefully and past the white faces of your smiling neighbors: the black eye of that housewife, the open racist comments of your father-in-law, that kid with his tell-tale bloodshot eyes and your socially drunk best friend - your 'safe-small-town' community is as bad or worse but just puts up a better white picket front.

okay everybody, yes i understand that sunrise is a ghetto area, but its not the only ghetto area, there are many other bad neigborhoods in san antonio, alot, so by moving away from that aint going to help. Just because you move into a nicer richer neigborhood doesnt mean your so safe. What you are trying to say is that poor people are the ones that do crime, well think again, poor people are not the only ones who do crime, rich people do too. There are alot of crazy , people out in the world and they are everywhere , either there rich or poor, so no matter what your never safe, and you always have to have your guard up and be watching out. One more thing just because your in a nice neigborhood doesnt mean your not going to get robbed or something, hello criminals go to the nicer neighborhoods to go rob.............
