ST. LOUIS — A man has been charged in the fatal shooting of his 36-year-old brother on Feb. 4. 

Brad Evans, 33, was charged with one count each of second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

According to charging documents, Brad Evans and his brother Kenneth got into an argument at an apartment in the city's Carondelet neighborhood. Witnesses told police that while the brothers were leaving the area in separate cars, Brad fired multiple shots into the Pontiac Grand Prix his brother was driving.

Officers were called to a shooting near the intersection of S. Broadway and Bates Street at about 3:20 p.m. Saturday, Feb, 4. There, they found a two-vehicle crash involving the Grand Prix. Kenneth Evans was behind the wheel unconscious and not breathing from a gunshot to the neck.
