SAN ANTONIO – A 39-year-old man called police early Wednesday morning after he shot and killed a man believed to be his romantic rival, police said.

Officers who responded around 1:30 a.m. to a strip mall in the 200 block of South W.W. White Road said they found William Perkins Jr. at the scene of the fatal shooting.

According to a police report, Perkins told investigators that the other man got out of his car and confronted the suspect as he left his business.

Perkins, who had been having an affair with the man's wife, shot him six times, the report said.

A man who said he was Perkins' business partner arrived at the strip mall several hours later to unlock the doors to the business. He declined to comment on the deadly shooting, saying that he learned about it from watching the news.

Perkins was charged with murder and is being held in the Bexar County Jail with bond set at $150,000.
