KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A 21-year-old Grandview man has been charged with the murder of a man found shot inside a Kansas City apartment.

Damon Hammons faces second-degree murder and armed criminal action charges. Prosecutors have requested a bond of $250,000 cash.

According to court records, police were called Saturday to an apartment in the 4000 block of East 56th Terrace on a reported shooting.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Marcus Mondaine in the bedroom suffering from a gunshot wound.

A witness told police she was in the apartment with Mondaine and her 1-year-old daughter when Hammons entered the residence and forced his way into the bedroom where the victim was sleeping. Hammons shot him once.

The woman grabbed her daughter and Hammons pointed his gun at her and her daughter.

"Are you going to tell on me? Are you going to tell on me?" he asked the woman.

The suspect fled the scene as the woman called the police.

Hammons is not yet in custody.
