SAN ANTONIO – A 34-year-old man is behind bars and charged with murder following a deadly shooting on the North Side late last year.

Kevin Lee Perez was initially arrested in December of 2020 in connection with the murder of a man who was found dead in his vehicle at Mossrock and Robin Hill Drive after being shot, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said Perez “randomly fired a weapon multiple times,” and struck the man, who was driving by at the time.

According to a previous KSAT report, the man was found dead on arrival by police with a gunshot wound to his upper body and severe head trauma.

Last month, Perez was indicted for murder, a first-degree felony, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to the sheriff’s office.

As of Tuesday, the BCSO’s TAG Unit received a tip on Perez’s whereabouts and found him in North Bexar County, where he was taken into custody without incident.

Court records show Perez is currently behind bars and awaiting a trial setting.
