    Instead of covering statues the Mayor of Birmingham should be using funds and time to stop all this. And what is the CHief doing?????????

    Matt, is this the Trussville Springs neighborhood in Trussville or the apartments formerly known as The Springs at Trussville behind Parish in Birmingham? Let us know and we’ll try to track down the details. Thanks!

    You can talk about Bell all you want to but do not question Chief Roper he’s out there trying his best to combat crime.

    Brenda Hasty I don’t live in Birmingham but care about what happens in the city, I’m with Roper on the second Saturday of each month in these communities with high crime areas Bell never comes out. Roper is trying that’s why #bellmustgo so Roper can get a mayor that will support him and the police department.

    Matthew Norman

    Yes. It’s within 200 yards of my restaurant and people should know. We are adding more lights to our parking and have upped security

    We believe we have the details. Just waiting on confirmation from the Birmingham Police Department.

    People should know the correct story. This article wasn’t about the apartment community. I don’t want anyone to get the stories confused. I also doubt your guest had the correct story either. I’m the property manager. I’m sure you wouldn’t want false information about your business coming out.

    The four police cars blew through the intersection with fire and rescue and first responders at 12:30 am. and power slid into your apartment complex. Four cars. Birmingham. Our customer showed me pictures of the bullets in his garage frame door. Now maybe he is completely lying, but four cop cars in high speed running the intersection and sliding into the apartments? I don’t mean to sound ugly, but I don’t think it was nothing and our 50 year old guest wasn’t likely saying it out of vanity. Sorry if it bothers you, but I’m worried about the safety of my customers. And watching the cops, that was my personal observance.

    I’m sure if it’s newsworthy, the Tribune will post very accurate coverage of it. And your apartments are great. Safety is and should be a priority for all of us.

    Matthew Norman good it’s sad that you can’t fill safe anymore without having a gun on you.

    Courtney Davis

    Absolutely Matthew Norman. I just want the correct story….and not someone to tag an apartment community in a post where others may get the stories confused. When you click on something that’s tagged, it takes you to that page. I don’t want someone to read this story and then click on someone’s comment and assume they are related.

    I can totally agree and REALLY! Your apartments are great! A lot of our clientele live there and love it! I in no way want to give the impression that we are casting a negative light on the community.
