HARRISONVILLE, Mo. (AP) _ A western Missouri man has been charged with three felonies after his ex-girlfriend was fatally shot and another man was wounded.

The Kansas City Star reports that 54-year-old Brian Parks, of Harrisonville, is being held on $50,000 bond after he was charged Monday with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

The charges were filed after 42-year-old Tammy Christiansen was killed and Sylvester Harbour was wounded at their Harrisonville residence. Court documents say Harbour told police that Parks and Christiansen once dated and recently had been arguing.

Harbour said he woke up Monday morning to find a man standing over him, holding a revolver. Harbour was wounded while jostling for control of the gun.
