Police: $10 debt led to fatal shooting on Kansas City street

(AP) — Authorities say a man has been charged in the fatal shooting of another man on a Kansas City street — a shooting investigators say stemmed from a dispute over a $10 debt. 

Court records show 34-year-old Brandon Johnson was charged Thursday with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting death of 63-year-old Ernest Gibson. 

Officers found Gibson with gunshot wounds around 12:45 a.m. Wednesday in his front yard in the Foxtown East neighborhood. 

Police say witnesses told investigators that Gibson had called Johnson to his home to arrange a drug deal and that the two began arguing, then fighting, over a $10 debt before the shooting.
