Sentencing Friday for man who shot, paralyzed Cardinals fan

Sentencing is Friday for the man who shot a St. Louis Cardinals fan after a 2015 game, leaving him paralyzed.

Kilwa Jones is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court. He pleaded guilty in July to five charges for shooting Army veteran Christopher Sanna and robbing Sanna’s girlfriend in September 2015.

The crime happened as the couple walked to their car that was parked near the Gateway Arch. Jones confronted the couple and when they tried to ignore him and walk away, Jones shot Sanna in the back. He took the girlfriend’s purse and rifled through Sanna’s pants pockets as he lay on the ground. Surveillance video showed Jones using Sanna’s debit card after the robbery.

Jones still faces state charges related to the crime.
