Kirisa Taimuty of Butler was the target of the late night shooting on sixth avenue this past week. She has not talked to anyone in the media until now, giving everyone an in depth look and details about the shooting that no one else knows about.
Taimuty tells Butler News that she had an earlier fight with Raheem Robinson about him being a deadbeat father. And that he does not take care of his kids, Taimuty says that Raheem did not like what she said and took exception to what she said.
Taimuty, in court documents, writes that she and another woman witnessed the shooting Thursday, and claims that she and her son were the targets of shots fired by Robinson.
When I asked her about the Butler Eagles article she said this was correct. And confirmed that Raheem was trying to kill her, her friend and 2 year old child. She tells Butler News that Mackenzie “baby killer” Peters was driving the car when shots were fired by Raheem. Peters has made statements that she would like “that bitch dead” before to people.
According to Taimuty, the incident involved Robinson and Mackenzie Peters.
Peters is the mother of Bentley Thomas Miller, who died last year after suffering injuries in what police say was a sexual assault. Peters was not charged in connection with Bentley’s death, but pleaded guilty last month to two misdemeanor charges related to injuries police say the boy suffered before the assault that resulted in his death. Peters was the driver in this shooting, and for some odd reason at this point has not been charged in the shooting, she was questioned and released.
“We had got into an argument about our unborn children,” Taimuty wrote in her PFA application. “He got upset I started walking back home himself and his girlfriend circled the block four times came down the street and fired six shots at my son and myself. I’m in fear for myself and my son’s life since he (Robinson) has not yet been found.”
A hearing on the temporary PFA, which was granted Monday morning, is set April 17th
Butler News talked to Police Chief Dave Adams, the Chief only made the following statement to the questions asked by Butler News “Officers recovered “multiple shell casings at the scene,” Adam would not discuss the caliber of the casings nor would he say if they were different”
But all of the neighbors reported TWO shooters, and by looking at the casings laying on the ground, it is clear one is a 22 and one is a 9mm.
Below is a full statement from Taimuty
“It all started over an argument of raheem lying to Kenzie about him talking to me, she texted me and asked if we all three could talk cause I was in the area I said yes. . He denied calling me and trying to stay with me every night last week. I got mad and told him to just leave me alone and lose my number basically and to sign his rights over cause my kids deserve better than him. . He got mad they had to leave so he could go make some money real fast Kenzie told me and my friend to wait and she’d be back raheem was running his mouth and making phone calls telling me he was gonna get people over there. And he was gonna get someone to beat my ass. Kenzie begged me to stay an talk though I agreed I waited outside and smoked a cigarette with the neighbor. Kenzie and raheem then circled the block 4 or 5 times in the process of that a random guy walking on 6th came up to my friend and I asked her number told her she she was cute she denied him and he started walking back down 6th we were walking on the other side of the road at this point Kenzie and raheem came back down 6th one last time stopped in the middle of the road raheem then got out of the car peeped his head over the car door and fired shots. Random guy on the opposite side of the street I believe fired back. . I’m sick of everyone saying it was a drug deal gone wrong or that I’m a bad mom because I had my son out at 9pm. I’m a single mother without transportation so I walk every where I need to be. My step father lives off of wood & Mercer I was walking to his house cause my son and I could not sleep. . And any women in her right mind would not feel comfortable with the father of their children dating Mackenzie Peters. Yes raheem is a drug dealer yes he lived with me yes he’s hit me and talked bad to me I was in an abusive relationship and anyone that has ever been in one would know how hard they are to leave because you are scared. But raheem being who he is and Kenzie being who she is they both give no fucks About anyone but themselves and still shot at me and my 2 year old son Kenzie and raheem have nothing else to lose in this life. So why not just take a mother or a son away from one another. I don’t judge anyone until they give me a reason they have both given me a reason and to everyone talking smack on me everyone has skeletons in their closet. ”
