A Missouri father has been charged with murder after authorities say he shot and killed his son outside of their home after "arguing over personal matters," then left him in the street and tried to hide the evidence.

Carl Walker Jr. is charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the death of Isaiah Walker, online court records reviewed by PEOPLE show.

Isaiah was 16 at the time of the Jan. 24 shooting, police previously announced. He was found wounded on a St. Louis, Mo., street by someone who alerted authorities, but it is unclear who found him. He died three days later on Jan. 27 from his injuries.

Carl allegedly hid the gun and clothing in a trash can shortly after the fatal shooting, a criminal complaint reviewed by PEOPLE alleges. However, Carl later admitted to shooting his son, authorities allege in the complaint.

He is being held on a $500,000 cash only bond in St. Louis and is scheduled to be arraigned today. An attorney for him was not listed.
