BERKELEY, Mo. (AP) - A suburban St. Louis man has been charged with fatally shooting another man in the middle of a street last year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/29VkF3v) reports that 21-year-old Joseph Cooper was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of 45-year-old Ehrman “Lonny” Davis IV.

Charging documents say Cooper confessed to shooting Davis with a shotgun in October 2015 in Berkley, the suburb where both men lived.

Cooper is jailed on $500,000 bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
