EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) - An Excelsior Springs teenager has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a former classmate in North Kansas City last month.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1MN4XRN ) that a Clay County grand jury indicted Tristian A. Wilton on Tuesday. He’s charged with second-degree murder and attempted robbery in the death of 18-year-old Tyler Eddington of Kansas City.

Eddington was found shot in a McDonald’s restaurant parking lot Oct. 14. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The second-degree felony murder charge covers defendants who may not have pulled a trigger but were involved in a crime that resulted in a homicide.

Wilton is being held at Clay County jail with a bond set at $1 million.

Wilton and Eddington graduated from Excelsior Springs High School this year.
