ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - Two Missouri men were wounded when they exchanged gunfire after one of them broke into an apartment in St. Charles on Sunday.

Both men are recovering at hospitals and one of them is facing charges, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s office charged 28-year-old Marshall Funkhouser with burglary, assault and armed criminal action.

Police said a 66-year-old man from Sikeston who was in town visiting family reported hearing yelling and two gunshots outside the apartment around 3 a.m. Sunday. Police said the man picked up his handgun just before Funkhouser kicked in the door.

The two men fired at each other. The 66-year-old man was struck in his lower abdomen while Funkhouser was hit in his torso.

Funkhouser was being held Sunday on $50,000 bond.
