Update | The Jackson County Prosecutor's office on Saturday charged Bozeman with one count of second-degree murder. He also faces one count of armed criminal action.

Original Story | A Kansas City, Missouri, man is facing charges of child endangerment and armed criminal action in connection to a Feb. 17 shooting incident that left two people dead.

Jackson County prosecutors charged DMarius Bozeman in connection to the incident, which left Boseman’s girlfriend, Khasheme Strother, 35, and Strother’s son, Raymon Hill, 20, dead and Boseman injured.

Court documents filed Friday in support of the charges outline an altercation that involved several people in the house at 1900 W. Pennway Terrace. At least three of the people allegedly involved in the altercation were juveniles ages 12, 15 and 16.

Court documents cite 9-1-1 audio during which Bozeman told police he had accidentally shot Strother in the chest and shot Hill in self-defense.

When police arrived at the home, they located Strother and Hill dead. Bozeman was transported to an area hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

No murder charges have yet been filed in the case.

Prosecutors have requested a $75,000 bond for Bozeman.
