KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a man whose body was found in a parked car.

The Jackson County prosecutor’s office says 26-year-old Lakeith R. Courtney is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the November 2015 death of Kevin Durham.

Court records say that witnesses told police that a man got out of a van and began shooting after the victim pulled up to a park. Courtney was linked to the shooting through surveillance video from a nearby store and digital images taken minutes before the shooting for a public transportation project. Those digital images showed the license plate of a minivan parked in the area.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $500,000. Courtney isn’t yet in custody.
