A thug allegedly shot another man dead after the pair came to blows over a missing Amazon delivery, police said.

Darnell Walker, 34, was arrested for first-degree murder after he fatally shot 27-year-old Travis Eugene Bowman on Saturday night, Kansas City police said in a statement.

The police in the city, which is in the Midwestern state of Missouri, said that they believed the men had an argument over the package that then turned into a fight, and eventually resulted in the shooting.

"Detectives believe the shooting stemmed from an argument and physical altercation between the two men regarding a missing Amazon package that had been delivered to the apartment of the victim’s sister," police said in a news release.

They didn't release any further details but did add that they are now investigating the matter further.

Police had previously said they were called at around 10:30 pm local time, to reports of a shooting on the 2900 block of Silver Court in the city.

The victim was taken to a hospital in the area but later succumbed to his injuries.

Walker is being held in the Wyandotte County Jail on a $250,000 (£182k) bond, the release stated.

The homicide is being investigated by the department’s Major Case Unit. Police are asking anyone with information to call them on their anonymous line.

It follows a June incident where a dispute arose between a customer and an Amazon delivery driver, that saw the latter allegedly assault the 67-year-old customer.

Video footage of the incident shows 21-year-old Itzel Ramirez argue with the woman animatedly before he unleashes a flurry of punches on her.

Ramirez reportedly verbally berated the victim about her “white privilege” before the attack, according to KTVU FOX2.

Police say that the victim may have called the suspect a "b***h" before the incident became violent.
