KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri man and his girlfriend are accused of endangering children during a suspected drug-related gunfight in Kansas City.

Jackson County prosecutors have charged 28-year-old Darrell Roberson of Belton and 25-year-old Roselynn Kuntz with child abuse and endangerment.

Authorities say the shooting  killed one man and wounded three other people, including a 2-year-old child who was with Roberson and Kuntz.

Prosecutors say Roberson told investigators he had set up a drug deal and fired a gun from his vehicle, near the two children he says he brought along because no babysitter was available. Kuntz also told police she also shot.

Police say the shooting killed a 19-year-old man who’d been part of the suspected drug deal.

Court records don’t show if Roberson and Kuntz have attorneys.
