KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 27-year-old Kansas City man is facing charges in connection with the deadly shooting of his girlfriend, 25-year-old Briana Johnson, early Sunday morning.
According to Jackson County prosecutors, DeCarlos D. Carrell faces charges of second-degree murder, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon and three counts of armed criminal action.
According to court records filed Monday, Kansas City police responded just after 4 a.m. Sunday to a shooting near E. Gregory Blvd. and Bales. When they arrived on scene, they found Johnson dead from a gunshot wound.
Three other adults were in the home who said Carrell displayed the weapon to them when he was turned away from the residence.

Prosecutors have requested a $150,000 bond.
