A 26-year-old man was charged with murder Monday in connection to a shootout that left one man dead on the Southeast Side last month, according to an arrest affidavit.

Trey Larenz Duncan is accused of shooting and killing 40-year-old Reginald Adams on April 21 at an apartment complex in the 4800 block of Pecan Grove. When police arrived at the scene just before 10 p.m., they found both men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at opposite ends of the complex's parking lot, the affidavit said.

Adams died at the scene while Duncan was rushed into surgery at a local hospital.

At the scene, police found multiple shell casings from an assault rifle in the area where Duncan was found and seven shell casings from a 9mm handgun near where Adams was found, the affidavit said.

When police were finally able to question Duncan the next day, they said he kept changing his story, according to the affidavit.

Several days later, police questioned a female acquaintance of Duncan who was at the apartment complex during the time of the shooting. She said she was with Duncan and another man visiting Duncan's family at the complex and went inside an apartment after a large crowd gathered around Duncan and the man they were with, the affidavit said.

Police said she returned outside only after hearing gunshots and found Duncan injured.

Because no one in the crowd was injured, police determined that Adams and Duncan were focused on each other, the affidavit said. Investigators said the amount of shell casings from the rifle versus the handgun show that Duncan was the aggressor, the affidavit continued.

Duncan told police he shot Adams in self defense but never gave police a reason for the shooting, the affidavit said.

Duncan's bail was set at $150,000.
