Antonio, TX – Latray Whitley, 23, was arrested yesterday evening by the Lone
Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio without incident. An arrest warrant was
issued by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) Homicide Division, where it
is alleged that Whitley committed first degree murder.
With the assistance of the SAPD Repeat Offenders Program (ROPE) unit and the San
Antonio Fear Free Environment (SAFFE) unit, task force officers determined that
Whitley was living in an apartment located in the 9500 block of Lorene Lane.
Task force officers entered the residence and Whitley was immediately arrested.
Whitely is currently being held in Bexar County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
In November 2009, Whitley and his brother Hollis Nealy, both members of the
Wheatley Court Gangsters, allegedly went to the Studio Night Club armed with
handguns to retaliate against a member of a rival gang, the East Terrorist
Gangsters. As the member from the East Terrorist Gangsters exited the night
club’s parking lot in his vehicle, Whitley and Nealy followed. At a traffic
light located at IH-35 and Eisenhauer Road, Whitley and Nealy pulled up next to
the vehicle and fired shots killing the driver. In June of this year, the arrest
warrant was issued for both Whitley and Nealy. Nealy was immediately arrested,
but Whitley was a fugitive until yesterday evening.
Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas,
states, “Once again The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was able to arrest an
alleged violent offender with the assistance of local law enforcement. As we
continue to work together, more arrests will be made and more lives will
hopefully be saved.”
