OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - An 18-year-old man has been charged in a suburban Kansas City shooting that left two men dead.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1HJ79Ij ) reports that Marquise Stokes, of Kansas City, Kansas, was arrested Saturday. He’s charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 18-year-old Velik Henderson of Overland Park. Henderson was killed June 30 along with 19-year-old Trevon Anderson of Kansas City, Kansas.

The homicides occurred on the same Overland Park block where a woman was killed and her 11-year-old daughter was wounded six days later. The slain woman has been identified as 36-year-old Quaushey Harris.

Another man was charged earlier this month with first-degree murder in the double homicide.

He and Stokes are both jailed on $2 million bond. It’s not immediately clear if Stokes has an attorney.
