SAN ANTONIO – A 26-year-old man has been extradited to Bexar County after he was arrested in East Texas in connection with a fatal shooting Monday on San Antonio’s East Side.

According to the San Antonio Police Department, Keith Corley was arrested in Madison County on Monday night without incident.

Corley is charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of Delon Lamont Weaver, 24.

According to a preliminary SAPD report, officers found Weaver lying on the sidewalk at the Antioch Village apartment complex in the 1500 block of Upland Drive around 11:40 a.m. suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to a hospital, where he died.

An arrest warrant affidavit for Corley states that surveillance footage captured him arriving at the location in his 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe.

He went to the victim’s apartment unit, knocked on the door for a few moments and entered the apartment.

Police said the victim was staying with Corley’s ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of one of Corley’s children.

A witness left the apartment before Corley and Weaver had an argument in the doorway, police said.

Corley “made a movement as if he was going to hit the victim and the victim pushed the defendant,” the affidavit states. Corley grabbed Weaver by the hair, they went down the stairs, and then Corley shot Weaver in the head, police said.

Corley fled the scene in his Tahoe but was arrested several hours later in Madison County.

Police said the witness identified the suspect.

Corley’s bond is set at $150,000.
