INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) -- A 37-year-old man has been charged with fatally shooting another man at an Independence gas station.

Shawn M. Hughes of Independence was charged Friday in Jackson County with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in Wednesday night's killing of 26-year-old Bobby Mullins of Versailles. No attorney is listed for Hughes in online court records.

The probable cause statement says police found Mullins' body on the ground beside a pickup truck at a Shell Gas Station. A witness told police that he was pumping gas when he saw a man walk over to the victim's vehicle and say, "Maybe this will teach you to shoot someone next time."

Court records say the man then shot the victim and fled on foot. Video captured the shooting.
