A man shot in the face as he was holding a baby on a front porch likely was misidentified by the alleged killer. A probable-cause statement from the Cape Girardeau/Bollinger County Major Case Squad says Corey C. Gilbert of 612 Locust St. told police he was the person the murder suspect was looking for when Airious D. Darling was shot and killed March 31. Darling was babysitting Gilbert’s 1-year-old daughter. Darling was returning the baby when Tavious L. Tipler walked up the porch and shot him in the face. Witnesses said Darling was holding the baby when he was shot. Gilbert said his interactions with Tipler began in January when he was robbed. Tipler admitted to police his role in that crime. Gilbert told Tipler he would identify him to police. A recorded statement says a friend of Tipler claims he had confessed he shot Darling while Darling was holding a baby. Tipler also told the friend he had made a mistake and shot the wrong person. Tipler has been charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action and first-degree endangering the welfare of a child. His bond was set at $500,000, cash only. He also has been charged with second-degree robbery from an incident in January. Tipler was on probation at the time of the murder.
