Early Morning Eastside Shooting Leaves Man Dead

An early morning shooting on the Eastside leaves a man dead.

It happened at around 1:30 Wednesday on South W.W. White Road–near I 10.

“The suspect was leaving his place of business and was backing up his vehicle and almost struck the victim’s vehicle” SAPD Officer Douglas Greene told KTSA News.

“At that point, that is when the victim exited, and had a verbal confrontation with the suspect. At that point, that’s when the suspect brandished a handgun, and shot multiple times” Greene said.

The shooter–39-year old William Perkins then called police. The 34-year old man he shot died soon after officers arrived.

Perkins, who reportedly had been having an affair with the man’s wife–was then taken to police headquarters to be questioned by detectives.

“After that interview, the detectives felt the shooting was not justifiable by the suspect, and charged him with murder” Greene said.
