KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two men have been charged with four felony counts in a fatal shooting that occurred in Kansas City, Missouri, last month.

Armani F. Elder, 19, and Larry G. Baker, 18, both face second-degree murder and first-degree assault charges, as well as two counts of armed criminal action.

Last month, Cortez Nash was shot and later died from his wounds and another man was wounded while the two men were in the area of 68th Street and Olive, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.

Both defendants are in custody. Prosecutors requested $250,000 bonds.
