HARRISONVILLE, MO (KCTV) -

A 54-year-old Harrisonville man has been charged after a shooting that left a woman dead and a man in the hospital.

Brian G. Parks was charged Tuesday with first-degree assault, armed criminal actions and unlawful possession of a firearm. Additional charges are expected to be filed soon.

Parks is currently incarcerated in the Cass County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.

This comes after police were called about 7 a.m. Monday to a home in the 1000 block of North Independence Street. The scene is less than a block away from the Harrisonville City Park.

Police say it was an off-duty officer who noticed two men fighting in front of the home.  The officer was later approached by a man who had been shot in the back. He was taken to a hospital.

"I seen a guy walking down the street in a white tank top and boxer shorts and he had blood all over his back and just walking down the street," an anonymous neighbor said.

Investigators say a woman was found dead inside the house. 

While neighbors describe the neighborhood to be family-friendly, they say there are always problems at the home where the woman was found shot to death. 

"My kids can ride their bikes to the park, but that house right there is my only concern it just needs to be torn down," one neighbor said.
