KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — A man who went to a Kansas City, Missouri, house for a paid sexual encounter instead killed a man who tried to rob him.

The incident began when the robbery victim went to a house at 1518 Oakley Ave. around 11:30 p.m. on May 23.

The man told police he met a woman online and agreed to pay her $50 for sex, according to court documents.

He saw the woman, Daeshafaun Jackson, on the front porch of the house and talked with her outside for about seven minutes, according to a court document.

The two went inside the house and the man gave Jackson $50.

Things turned violent when two men armed with handguns, identified as Joshua Jackson and Anthony Blackmon, came out of separate bedrooms.

The victim told police one of the men said, "give us everything,'' according to a court document.

A gun battle flared between the would-be robbers and the victim.

The victim killed Joshua Jackson, 30, who was stepfather of the woman who agreed to have sex for money with the victim, court documents state.

Police found the victim with gunshot wounds in the parking lot of a nearby Dollar General store.

Officers also found a .45-caliber handgun in the victim's car.

Jackson County prosecutors charged Daeshafaun Jackson, 20, with second-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action, attempted robbery, assault and tampering with physical evidence.

Blackmon, 21, is charged in Jackson County court with second-degree murder, three counts of armed criminal action, attempted robbery and tampering with physical evidence.
