KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A man has been charged with fatally shooting his father and another man outside a Kansas City convenience store.

Eighteen-year-old Reginald Jones Jr., of Kansas City, was charged Tuesday with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action in the deaths of 36-year-old Reginald Jones Sr. and 57-year-old Darryl Singleton. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

He surrendered to police Monday, four days after the shooting at LP’s Grocery and Liquor. A witness says the younger Jones showed up at the store after arguing on the phone with his father. The witness says the father then went outside to talk to his son.

Court records say the younger Jones pulled a gun and shot his father and then Singleton before driving away.
