KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas City, Kansas, tire shop owner has been charged with fatally shooting a man in front of the store.

Celestino Zavala-Ruiz was charged Wednesday in Wyandotte County District Court with second-degree murder in the death of David Burkin.

Prosecutors said in a news release that Burkin was rushed to a hospital late Sunday after he was found in a stolen vehicle that had crashed. Medical staff determined he had been shot, and he died of his wounds.

The release said the shooting happened in front of Zavala-Ruiz’s Zavala Tire Service. The release didn’t say what led up to the shooting.

Zavala-Ruiz is jailed on $150,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney.
