KIRKWOOD — Two men are now in custody in the shooting death of a recent high school graduate in the St. Louis County town of Kirkwood.

Eighteen-year-old Keenan Miller of Oakland, was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder. Meanwhile, police captured the other suspect Tuesday night, and will seek charges against him. By midday Wednesday, charges had not been filed. Police said the second suspect was the gunman.

The men are accused in the death of 18-year-old Brandon Richards. Police said Miller was delivering marijuana for sale Monday at a home in Kirkwood where Richards was killed. Richards graduated from Kirkwood High School shortly before his death.

Miller is jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.
