SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 8, 2018) — District 1 Councilman Roberto Treviño provided the following statement in response to an altercation that occurred across from Pegasus Nightclub in which three people were wounded:

 

“I am deeply saddened by the events that unfolded early this morning near North Main and Evergreen. The community has worked tirelessly to make ‘The Strip’ a welcoming, safe space for everyone, and such incidents will not deter us from that goal. I pray the three victims make a speedy recovery, but real healing begins with action. We need to seek out the common ground within our interactions instead of hastily resorting to hate and violence.

 

Advocates and entrepreneurs have done an exemplary job of increasing safety on The Strip. My hat goes off to the security staff who effectively utilized the ‘active shooter response’ training they received after the tragic events in Orlando at the Pulse Nightclub. I have confidence SAPD will find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. Please contact (210) 207-SAPD with any tips that might lead to the capture of the culprit(s).”
