A suspect in two deadly Thanksgiving Day shootings was charged with murder on Friday after he walked into a Missouri police station covered in blood and confessed to killing two people.
Torry Andre Upchurch, 27, went into the Jefferson City Police Department just hours after 17-year-old Earle Key Jr. and 33-year-old Shantae Hill-Cook were shot dead on Thursday, allegedly telling an officer in the lobby, ‘I know I committed two murders’.
Upchurch was arrested moments after and charged with two counts of first-degree murder, in addition to armed criminal action, unlawful use of a firearm, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Reports from authorities confirm the first shooting occurred at around 6pm, when Upchurch reportedly knocked on the door of 1308 W. McCarty St, where Key had been staying.
Upchurch, dressed in all black, is said to have shot the teenager in the face with a 9mm handgun as he opened the door, killing him instantly.
The pair are said to have known one another, however the extent of their relations was not specified by authorities.
By the time police arrived, the suspected gunman had vanished with witnesses claimed to have seen a man running from the scene on foot.
