The Brownsville Public Library has finally reopened its doors after being closed for eight days.

Brownsville police said there is now police presence at the main library and at the Southmost branch. At least one officer will be on duty at each library when before, the library had an unarmed security officer. 

Investigators say on Saturday, May 11, Humberto Paz shot and killed a 71-year-old man inside the main library branch.
