KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

UPDATE (12/12): The Jackson County Prosecutor's Office has charged a man in connection to the double homicide in the 4500 block of East 24th Street. 

Reginald Jones, Jr. is accused of murdering his father and a store clerk at a grocery store in the area. 

Jones is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action. 

Court records say surveillance video was instrumental in the charges being filed. 

Surveillance video showed Jones pointing a gun at his father outside the store on the sidewalk. When the father turned to enter the store, Jones shot him multiple times. The defendant then pointed the gun at the second victim and shoots him.

Jones admitted to being at the grocery store that night after being called there by the victim.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $500,000 cash.
