SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A Springfield man was charged Monday with second-degree murder in a shooting death outside a convenience store.

Garrett Austin Eagle, 22, was also charged with robbery, unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of armed criminal action.

Prosecutors allege he shot Jason Masters, 49, of Springfield, Friday outside the Conoco Village Mart in west Springfield. Officers found Masters wounded inside a truck and he died later at a hospital.

Masters told police he was not the shooter but he did not want to name the person who did the shooting, KYTV reported.

Online court records do not name an attorney for Eagle.
