A man accused of firing a sawed-off shotgun through a window and killing a man outside was charged Monday with first-degree murder in Oklahoma County District Court.

Phillip Antonio Davis, 38, of Oklahoma City, also was charged with possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

The victim, Keaunce LaTrell Mustin, 37, was shot and killed about 3:20 a.m. Saturday outside an apartment building at 3447 SE 44, where he was living with his girlfriend, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Davis told investigators he was spending the night with a woman who lives in another apartment in the building when the woman woke him and said someone was trying to break in, the affidavit states.

He told police he took the 12-gauge shotgun into the living room, where he heard what sounded like glass breaking, so he fired one round, according to the affidavit.

Investigators said the shotgun blast went through the glass of the window and hit Mustin in the chest. They found no glass shards inside the living room window where Davis reported hearing someone breaking in, the affidavit states.

Davis has served time in prison on convictions in Oklahoma, Cleveland and Garfield counties on various charges, including drug possession and burglary.

He is being held in the Oklahoma County jail without bail.
