(KMOV) -- A second suspect has been charged in a shooting that killed one man and critically injured another at a vacant home in south St. Louis July 24.

Police say Terence McKinney, 17, of the 6100 block of Minnesota, is charged with second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, two counts of first-degree robbery, attempted first-degree robbery, and six counts of armed criminal action. Samuel Vazquez-Gonzales, 18, was previously charged in this incident.

A 21-year-old victim also sustained gunshot wounds to the chest and neck and was taken to a hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition. The third man was uninjured.

McKinney is being held without bond.
