A Kansas City man faces murder charges in an Easter Sunday fatal shooting of Robert A. Witmer.

Officers found Williamson and a handgun in the shed where he lives. A witness told police that Witmer and Williamson had been in an argument. Witmer picked up a rock and Williamson said he would shoot him.
