Darrius Buckley was fatally shot during an argument Saturday evening in the Far South Side Jeffery Manor neighborhood, and police immediately arrested a suspect.

Delton Bates, 42, has been charged with first-degree murder for the shooting, which happened in a driveway in the 9700 block of South Merrion, according to Chicago Police.

Buckley, 33, and Bates were arguing in the driveway at 8:47 p.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Bates allegedly took out a gun and shot Buckley multiple times in the head, according to authorities.

Buckley, known as “Debo,” lived nearby in the same neighborhood. He was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

Bates, who on the block where the shooting occurred, was arrested in the driveway about 10 minutes after the shooting, police said.

Bond was denied for Bates during a court appearance Tuesday, according to Cook County sheriff’s office records. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 5.
