Jackson County prosecutors have charged a 32-year-old Kansas City man in the shooting death of another man following a confrontation at a neighborhood convenience store.
Dewayne D. Toombs faces second-degree murder and armed criminal action charges in the Oct. 12 shooting of Christopher Mansaw, 37.
Police said Mansaw was standing in front of a house in the 3000 block of College Avenue when several males approached him and one shot him. Officers sent to the scene were flagged down by witnesses who said their father had been shot.
Mansaw was found sprawled in front of the residence. He later died at a hospital.

According to court records, witnesses told investigators they were confronted by four males while inside a convenience store. They said Toombs was very aggressive and tried to push one of them out of the store. One of the males told Toombs that one of the witnesses was not whom he was looking for. The males and Toombs left the store.
A short time later, the same males arrived at Mansaw’s house. A witness and Mansaw were talking to them when the shooting occurred.
Several witnesses later identified Toombs as the shooter, according to court records.
