KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Two teenagers are charged in a fatal shooting at a Kansas City, Kan., apartment building that also left a suspected co-conspirator dead.

The Wyandotte County district attorney's office said Friday that Deon Graham and Tiara Harden are both charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 27-year-old Shavar Buckner. The two suspects, both 18, are also charged with aggravated robbery and conspiracy.

Police found Buckner and 17-year-old Earnest Stamps shot to death Tuesday morning in a basement hallway.

The charges allege the two 18-year-olds conspired with Stamps to rob Buckner. Authorities believe Stamps and Buckner exchanged gunfire during the attempted robbery, leaving both dead.

Graham and Harden were being held on $1 million bonds. They did not yet have attorneys.
