KENNETT, Mo. (KAIT) - Police are searching for a Kennett man wanted for murder.

Dunklin County Prosecuting Attorney Nicholas Jain announced Monday that Andrea L. Davis, 22, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Javon Jackson.

Kennett police found Jackson suffering from apparent gun shot wounds Sunday afternoon in the 400-block of Beaton Street.

Jackson was taken to a hospital in Hayti where he later died.

According to the probable cause statement, witnesses told officers that Davis shot Jackson following a previous altercation.

“In this altercation witnesses said Jackson attempted to strike them with a moving vehicle while they were walking on a sidewalk,” the court documents stated.

Some of the witnesses, along with Davis, went to the Beaton Street Apartment complex where Jackson lived to confront him.

Following the homicide, Jain said Davis fled the scene.

A warrant has been issued for Davis’s arrest, but Jain said he is apparently “trying to evade capture.”

Jain asks that anyone with information on Davis’s whereabouts should contact local law enforcement immediately, adding that Davis should be “considered armed and dangerous.”
