NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

A man is facing charges in connection to a fatal shooting in north St. Louis in April.

Andy Watson, 19, is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

He allegedly shot Lee Eason, 29,  in the back near the intersection of Blair and Newhouse in the Hyde Park neighborhood. Police say Eason had an argument with someone on the morning of the shooting, which led to the shooting. 

"We just ask the community to have level heads. These are individuals that are involved with other individuals," said Captain Mary Warnecke of the St. Louis County Police Department. "This is not a random crime."

Eason was pronounced dead on the scene. Watson is being held on a $750,000 cash-only bond.
