Former Mahon Elementary will not become homeless shelter

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A possible homeless shelter had residents worried in one Lubbock neighborhood. Now they can rest easy.

A written statement from Councilman Victor Hernandez says the deal is off. A Lubbock businessman had put in a bid for the former Mahon Elementary, which was up for sale by the Lubbock ISD.

Hernandez lobbied the school to reconsider the deal. This morning, Hernandez quotes the school system saying "they won't sell the building after all."

Hernandez supports a homeless shelter, but not in a residential neighborhood.
