John Kurth charged in Wednesday night shooting

Hannibal police have identified a New London man who now faces murder charges in Wednesday night's fatal shooting of a Hannibal man.

Police Thursday morning said that 24-year old John Kurth has been charged in Marion County with counts of 2nd Degree Murder and Armed Criminal Action. He's been charged in the shooting of a 46-year old Hannibal man, which happened just after 6 PM Wednesday night in the 1500 block of Broadway. Police say the victim died at the scene, but still aren't identifying the victim. A earlier report says that when officers got there, they found that the victim had been shot. They also say they found Kurth within minutes, just a couple of blocks away.

Kurth is in the Marion County Jail on $1 million cash-only bond. A court date's not been set.
