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.



Two are dead following a shooting at 24th and Cypress Avenue in Kansas City.

Police say the two died at the scene.

Two men were shot and killed in front of the liquor store in the area.

Officers on scene believe it was not a drive-by, nor was it a robbery.

Both victims are believed to be between the ages of 40 and 50 years old.

No one has been arrested yet.

On Friday, the victims were identified as 57-year-old Darryl Singleton and 36-year-old Reginald Jones.
