RAYTOWN, MO (KCTV) -

A Kansas City man has been charged in the Thursday morning shooting and killing of Steven L. Jones outside of a school in Raytown, prosecutors announced Friday.

Falonzo Davis, 42, faces charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

According to court records, Davis in a statement to Raytown police detectives said he could not handle that his wife was seeing Jones. Davis said he went and got a gun from the pawn shop and found out when Jones would be at his children's school. He waited at the school and ran up to the vehicle Jones was driving. He pointed a gun at Jones and fired multiple times, killing Jones.

Police were called to the Raytown Schools Education and Conference Center, which contains the alternative school Raytown Success Academy, about 10:30 a.m. Thursday on reports of shots fired in their parking lot.

Officers got to the scene and took Davis into custody. They also found 30-year-old Jones dead from multiple gunshot wounds in a vehicle.

Court documents said the building's video surveillance captured the entire shooting. It showed Davis arriving in the parking lot at 10:04 a.m. and sitting in his vehicle until he saw Jones and Davis' wife arrive at 10:27 a.m. to drop off Davis' son for school.

The video then showed Davis get out of his vehicle and sprint toward the other vehicle. His wife and son had already gotten out by the time he arrived and he began arguing with his wife. At one point the court documents even said Davis' son got between himself and his wife.

Court records said Davis then was seen going back to the vehicle Jones was in, opening the driver's door and appearing to fire a gun inside.

While interviewing with police, Davis said he yelled at his wife, "Look what you made me do" after firing the shots.

In a later interview, Davis explained himself further, saying that he felt like Jones was stealing his family from him and his wife was allowing Jones to take over his family and he was, "Mad as hell."

A bond of $750,000/10 percent has been set for Davis.
