KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man suspected of being high on psychedelic mushrooms is charged with killing a man in a Kansas City, Missouri, apartment, according to court records.

Police found 19-year-old Logan Shank shot to death Wednesday night in an apartment in the 11300 block of Montgall Avenue.

Shank had been in Graham Dill's bedroom watching television, a court document said.

Others in the apartment heard a gunshot and saw Shank fall to the floor just outside the bedroom. Police found Dill inside the apartment and took him to police headquarters, according to the court document.

An officer told Dill to turn around and said he would remove Dill's handcuffs.

Dill said he didn't have on handcuffs and seemed incoherent, according to the court document.

Detectives watched as Dill paced around an interview room, punching and kicking the walls and yelling for his friends and roommate, the document stated.

Dill also felt along the walls of the room as if trying to figure a way out.

He asked for a cup of water and detectives brought him one.

The court document states Dill, without prompting, said, "I was in an altercation" and "did I not kill this kid?" He also said, "I love him with all my heart."

Detectives searched Dill's bedroom and found a large baggy containing what appeared to be psychedelic mushrooms and a spent 9mm shell casing and a 9mm handgun.

Prosecutors charged Dill, 19, with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in connection with Shank's death.
