YAKIMA -- Two men have been charged with murder in last weekend's fatal shooting of a man outside a Yakima supermarket.
The Yakima Herald-Republic reports that 21-year-old Jordan Daisy of Seattle and 23-year-old Ezra Swann of Tukwila were charged Thursday in Superior Court with first-degree murder, attempted murder and first-degree assault.
They are accused in the death of 27-year-old James Kilby of Union Gap. Kilby was shot in the chest Saturday night when he went to pick up a friend who had been involved in a physical altercation with Daisy and Swann. Authorities say Kilby's friend was apparently the intended victim.
Kilby also had a Kitsap County address.
Daisy and Swann are being held on $2 million bail.
