October 5, 2017
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 30-year-old man was sentenced to four life sentences without parole for a shooting that killed a Kansas City man and paralyzed a 10-year-old boy.
Jackson County authorities say Dontae Jefferson was sentenced Wednesday for first-degree murder and other charges in the 2014 shooting at a gas station.
The shooting killed Ka'Vyea Curry and struck his son, Ka'Vyea Tyson-Curry, in the spine. An unrelated 5-year-old in the car wasn't harmed. The Kansas City Star reports video shows Curry, his son and the other boy buying candy and juice before returning to the car.
