Here are the changes:

— More security patrols

— Reducing the number of guests allowed per resident

— issuing photo IDs for residents and requiring them to carry them… no ID, no admittance

Last Thursday night, a 21 year old went to the hospital with a non life-threatening injury after a shooting at the apartments.

Last summer, three people were shot & one died, in a confrontation with a group of men outside their apartment.  Three people are awaiting trial in that case.

Douglas Heights is located on Douglas Street behind Champys on MLK Boulevard.
