HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) — Two teenagers are charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing a 20-year-old man on Interstate 270 near St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that 19-year-old Courtland Kent of O’Fallon, Missouri, and 17-year-old Darrius Jones of Ferguson, Missouri, also are charged with armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

The shooting happened Dec. 13 in Hazelwood. Marvin Lindoren Davis was driving a Nissan sedan when he was shot. He died at the scene.

Hazelwood police say a third suspect is still being sought.

Police believe the shooting is unrelated to another shooting that happened Friday along the same stretch of I-270. In that shooting, two men and a woman were shot while traveling on the highway. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. No arrests have been made.
