Jayden James : “31-Year-Old Man Faces Multiple Charges in Connection to Deadly Shooting in East Kansas City”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : A 31-year-old man, Tamon Daniel, is facing multiple felony charges in connection to a deadly shooting that occurred on Tuesday in east Kansas City, Missouri. Jackson County prosecutors have charged Daniel with second-degree murder, unlawful use of a weapon, and two counts of armed criminal action.

According to court documents, the Kansas City police officers responded to a shooting incident around 4 p.m. near E. 49th Terrace and Heritage Avenue, close to U.S. 40 Highway and Noland Road. When the officers arrived at the scene, they found Daniel at the intersection. He immediately waved the officers down, surrendering by putting his hands up and laying down with his arms behind his back. The officers then placed him in handcuffs.

Daniel admitted to the officers that he had shot someone. Upon searching the area, the officers discovered an AR-15 style pistol, a gray jacket, and a cell phone on the ground next to him. Neighbors directed the officers to a wrecked black Dodge Journey in the woods down the street. In a vacant lot in a cul-de-sac, they found the victim, 21-year-old Jayden James, lying dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

Based on the evidence, the incident was ruled a homicide. A witness stated that a man armed with a rifle had fired at him and the deceased victim through the windshield of the car they were sitting in. However, no firearms were found in or around the witness’ vehicle or the deceased victim.

During questioning, Daniel claimed that he had gone to the apartment complex to protect his sister, believing that two individuals involved in her kidnapping were present and armed. According to court records, the men pointed their guns at him, and he retaliated by pointing his rifle at them. He denied firing shots at the men while they were near their vehicle. Instead, he chased them in his vehicle with the intention of running them over. Daniel believes he succeeded in running over one of the men before crashing his vehicle. He then shot the man he hit approximately 4-8 times with his assault rifle. Afterward, he walked up the hill, notified the police, and surrendered to them.

No firearms were found in or around the victim’s vehicle, supporting Daniel’s claim. He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday at 1 p.m. for further proceedings.
