Edwin Figueroa is charged with murder. The deadly shooting happened around 9 p.m. Wednesday on South Drive near Wilcrest.
Figueroa confessed to officers that the victim had an affair with his wife, and he beat him up, according to new details revealed in court Friday.
Prosecutors say Figueroa was so mad he bought a pistol, drank some beer, did cocaine and went to the victim's apartment, where he shot him several times as he showered.
Police told ABC13 that after the victim was shot, he managed to stumble out into the parking lot of the complex and someone then called 911.
