JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Authorities have charged two men with capital murder in the shooting death of a Pleasant Grove man.

Kennis Rucker, 30, was shot and killed Monday on 3rd Street in Docena. Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies say Rucker was at a home visiting his girlfriend when her ex-boyfriend arrived.

The ex-boyfriend, Markeith Hall, is the father of the woman's four-year-old daughter. Deputies say when Hall and another man came to get the child, an argument began. Authorities say Rucker shut the door and one of the men fired a shot through it, killing Rucker.

Hall and Refeal Peoples are charged with capital murder. Each man claims the other fired the shot. Neither the child nor her mother were hurt.
