KANSAS CITY (AP) — A Kansas City man tracked down and fatally shot his girlfriend at her friend’s house over the weekend, prosecutors have said in court filings.

DeCarlos Carrell, 27, is charged with second-degree murder and other counts for the Sunday shooting death of 25-year-old Briana Johnson.

Three people who were with Johnson at the home told investigators that Carrell showed up at the home around 4 a.m. holding a gun and yelling for Johnson, police said. As he turned away from the home, he fired a shot that broke a window and hit Johnson, killing her, investigators said. He also fired six rounds into Johnson’s car, police said.

Video obtained from a neighbor showed a man ring his doorbell, identify himself as “Carlos” and say he was looking for “Briana,” according to court documents. A witness also identified Carrell out of a lineup as the man who came to the door, police said.
