What started as a self-defense shooting at a Tampa convenience store last month has turned into a murder investigation.
Store owner Taquanda Shanti Baker, 32, is charged with filing a false police report, tampering/fabricating evidence and firing her weapon in an occupied dwelling to make it look like self-defense.
The charges stem from a shooting last month at Bakers Mini Mart on Armenia Avenue.
Tampa Police say Baker completely made up a story about shooting and killing 16-year-old Quantavius Moore, who goes by Antonio.
Three weeks ago, Baker told detectives she was working at a mini-mart and shot Moore because he pulled a gun and was trying to rob the store.
Police say her story did not match forensic evidence or witness statements.
Based on surveillance video from a nearby business, police say Baker was not at the scene when Moore was shot. Officers say Baker arrived nine minutes after the first 911 call.
Moore's mom wants to know why Baker's covering for the actual shooter.
Tampa Police Chief Castor says Baker knows the person of interest but is not cooperating with detectives.
"There is a relationship between the two of them and we know that they have a child in common, Castor said. And we're trying to get to the bottom of his identity is what we need right now."

....but he did not shoot the iron skillet.
Father of Hexavius.
Grandfather of Septavius.
Great-grandfather of Octavius.
No! Wait! That would have been Quintavius.
The above link is a video of a comedian named Trevor Noah on Jay Leno. He is “mixed race” (black) from South Africa. Very interesting and VERY funny bit. Talks about how he always wanted to come to America so he could be black.
“Or as they call themselves ‘African American’ - they’re not - but we’ll play along”.
Then goes into the whole weird name thing.
They're like anthropological site flags, aren't they?
This area of Tampa is near the old Haunted Hospital.
A H.U.D. project area that is as bad area as you can find.
Carpet bombing would be a blessing.
Right, you just know that this woman was “inspired” by the Trayvon coverage, and the media coverage of “stand your ground” laws. She thought she had found a loophole, and even though this time, she was not very smart, others are bound to try the same thing, over and over again.
Well, in order for them to recognize that fact and stop naming their kids with stupid names, they would have to first: a) understand that these names sound stupid to everyone else, and that this will affect the child’s life, then b) actually care about their child’s life. I think you are going to come up short in both of those departments with the people who pick these ludicrous names.
So many wacky cobbled up names I got a headache
Check out these names:
Could be a variant spelling of Reagan/Regan.
Thanks, two of the names I didn’t have yet.
My parents didn't name me that.
It was a nickname I picked up later.
Right, learn to read. I did not say this woman was inspired by Trayvon. I said some race hustlers called for blacks to kill and call it self defense.
I didn’t mean to say that you said she was inspired by the Trayvon case, I’M saying she was inspired by the Trayvon case. She lives in Florida, she’s in the ghetto, it’s all she’s been hearing about for weeks now, it’s obvious.
