A man is facing charges for allegedly fatally shooting a woman and wounding a man inside a car in Ferguson.

Calvin White, 21, is charged with second-degree murder, first-degree assault and armed criminal action.

Authorities say Christina Jones and Brandon George were sitting inside a car outside of Jones’ home when White approached them.

Police say White argued with Jones and tried to hit her before hitting George. White had a gun in one hand while trying to hit Jones with the other, police say.

Police said George retrieved his gun and fired shots at White before White went behind the car and fired more than 10 shots inside the car.

Jones was shot in the head and later died. Police said George was wounded in the back and taken to a hospital.
