Heidi Schmidt, WDAF, October 18, 2022

Jackson County Prosecutors said a woman who shot and killed a Kansas City firefighter earlier this month will not be charged, saying it was self-defense.

While in the store, Santi heard Ja’Von Taylor cussing at a female employee. {snip}

The clerk told Taylor to leave the store. When he refused, Santi stepped in and also told him to leave. Court documents show Taylor began threatening Santi.


The court document shows Taylor pulled a gun, and the two men started fighting over the weapon. A woman who arrived at the store with Taylor got out of a vehicle. {snip}
