KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 27-year-old man is accused of recklessly causing a shooting death earlier this month in Kansas City, Missouri.

Jackson County prosecutors charged 27-year-old Bayron Cuellar with first-degree involuntary manslaughter.

Court records allege that Cuellar was handling a handgun as a passenger in a vehicle on Dec. 13 on Interstate 435 when the weapon fired, shooting 19-year-old Luis Palacios-Romero in the head.

The victim was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Court records don’t show whether Cuellar has an attorney.
