MARSTON, Mo. (KFVS) - A Kansas man faces murder charges in the shooting death of another man.

The suspect was identified as 29-year-old Shawn Luke Sinclair of Iola, Kansas. He was also charged with armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

Sinclair is accused of shooting another man at Moore’s RV Park on Highway 61 in Marston, Mo. late on Tuesday night, May 25.

New Madrid County Chief Deputy Chris Hensley said the victim is from Republic, Mo. and had also been staying at the RV Park.
