KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 42-year-old man has been charged with fleeing the country to avoid being prosecuted in a Kansas City shooting that left two people dead and two others wounded.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2gzxFh0 ) reports that the federal unlawful flight charge was filed Monday against Jose Yepes-Zavala.

He previously was charged in Jackson County with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 31-year-old Antonio Hernandez and 39-year-old Omero Garcia. They were among four people shot in July 2015 at a party.

Court documents filed in the federal case say investigators obtained a court order to track Yepes-Zavala’s cellphone and also received information from a confidential informant that he is living in Mexico.
