SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities are looking for two men who have been charged in a shooting death in southeast Missouri.

Police say 31-year-old Christopher Qurvon West was shot to death while he sat in his vehicle in Sikeston Sunday evening.

On Monday, Scott County prosecutors charged 27-year-old William Henry Applewhite III, and 29-year-old Gailon Lamarous Applewhite, both of Sikeston, with murder and armed criminal action in West’s death. The men have not been arrested and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Sikeston police said in a news release that West and Applewhite had a fight a couple hours before the shooting. The men apparently had an ongoing feud.
