A Bakersfield mother has put out a plea to find a man wanted for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter. Ka'mya Robinson was playing outside when she was hit and killed by a stray bullet last month.
Bakersfield police have issued a warrant for the arrest of 28-year-old Anthony Chacon.
17 News went to the neighborhood where the toddler was shot and killed, to see if anyone knows where Chacon is, but no one recognized his picture. It has been 22 days since the toddler was killed.
"She tells me Momma. Pow pow pow. My Mya is dead. That's a two-year-old. That's a baby," said Katie Wimbley, Robinson's mother.
Ra'mya and Ka'mya Robinson were inseparable. The two-year-old twins were always together, dressed alike. "What if it was your kid and you couldn't hear your daughter play with her twin or her brothers and sisters? Put yourselves in my shoes," continued Wimbley.
On April 30th, Robinson was shot and killed when, police say, a group of men in a dark colored SUV got into a fight with at least two other men at the corner of Virginia Avenue and Robinson Street in south Bakersfield.
Police say Chacon is the man who fired from the SUV and they need your help to find him. "Witness information led to the identification of Chacon as being responsible as the man who shot at the other group of men. He was the right front passenger in the Navigator," said Sgt. Mary DeGeare, Bakersfield Police Department.
Chacon is 6'4" and weighs 220 pounds. He is no stranger to run-ins with the law. He's had dozens of criminal charges dating back a decade. A quick check of the Kern County Superior Court website shows Chacon has more than 18 prior criminal cases.
Chacon has served jail time for spousal abuse, drug possession, DUI and felony false imprisonment. He also has one current case that includes evading a peace officer, possession of ammunition by a felon, and drug sales.
Chacon is considered armed and dangerous. If you know where he is, call Bakersfield Police at 327-7111.
