(FAIRFAX, Mo.)  -- A Fairfax man is being charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of another man from the same Atchison County, Missouri community.

55 year-old James Bradbury is accused of shooting and killing 72 year-old William Hull at an apartment complex in Fairfax on Monday.

Bradbury had barricaded himself in a unit at the apartment complex to avoid arrest and was involved in a one-hour standoff with law enforcement that included an exchange of gunfire.

The suspect eventually surrendered peacefully.

It is unclear at this time what led up to the shooting.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
