A few weeks into their first semester at University of the Incarnate Word’s School of Osteopathic Medicine, the 162 students in UIW’s inaugural class were paired up with 27 families from the Southside Independent School District.

For the next two years, the medical students will visit or call the parents, grandparents and students every two weeks. The goal is to help the families improve their health in a part of the region that has some of the worst health outcomes in San Antonio.

The University of the Incarnate Word Board of Trustees has unanimously voted Monday to fire long-time President Lou Agnese effective immediately. This comes after he was placed on a 90-day medical leave following comments that the board deemed out of character and offensive.

In a statement provided to reporters, board Chairman Charles Lutz said, “Agnese has been with UIW for 31 years and that UIW had “benefited greatly from his efforts to grow the university which is now the third largest private university in Texas.”

SAN ANTONIO  — A San Antonio suburb has released audio and video of a university police officer’s fatal shooting of a student.

The Alamo Heights Police department released the recordings Thursday of the police shooting death of Cameron Redus.

Chris Carter, who eventually resigned from the University of Incarnate Word police force after the shooting, was cleared Wednesday by a Bexar County grand jury.

The audio shows Carter giving an inaccurate location for the December 2013 confrontation, delaying any backup response.
