NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

A man is facing charges in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred in North County on Easter Sunday.

St. Louis County Police said 41-year-old Tommie Daniels was shot multiple times inside a home in the 10400 block of Duke, in Castle Point. He was pronounced dead at the scene around 6:00 a.m. Sunday.

Robert Simpson, 34, also of North County, is charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, and burglary. Simpson is not custody, police are still looking for him.

Police said Simpson broke into Daniels' home through the front door before the shooting. No property appeared to be missing from the home.

Simpson and Daniels had a dispute going back several days, police say. Officers believe Daniels and another person went to Simpson's home a few days before the shooting, kicked in the door and beat Simpson up.

Simpson allegedly told others he wanted to kill Daniels and his roommate. Authorities say Simpson even asked others for directions to Daniels' home. Simpson told others he killed Daniels, police say. Officers told News 4 say evidence matches the details Simpson provided to others when he admitted to the shooting.

Anyone with information on Simpson's whereabouts is asked to contact CrimeStoppers or police. Police consider Simpson to be armed and dangerous.
