19-year-old charged in convenience store shooting

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 19-year-old Kansas man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a customer at a south Wichita convenience store.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1jkWBCF) reports Jackson Bryant also was charged Tuesday with aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery, criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property.

He is accused of killing 29-year-old Jeffrey Michael Jones while robbing the BD Convenience Store shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police say Bryant entered the store and pointed a gun at the clerk, demanded money, then shot Bryant in the head after a short conversation.

It was not immediately clear whether Bryant had obtained an attorney. He was being held on $1 million bond.
