The Baby

 Dameon D. Gatson, 22, has allegedly told that he thought he had a problem. He thought his girlfriend that he had been with for about 7 months had been unfaithful. And she got pregnant, she was 6 months along. And to make matters worse, he reportedly didn’t want anymore children he already had a 3 year old with another woman.

He allegedly discussed all of this with his friend Paul A. Petersen, 18. Allegedly a plan was developed. According to what Peterson has told police, Gatson agreed to pay him $200 to assault the girlfriend and cause a miscarriage.

On April 21, Gatson allegedly called the girlfriend to find out where she was. He then drove Peterson to the apartment where the girlfriend was and Peterson went to the door and asked for her.

When she came to the door the two stepped out into the hall to talk and he reportedly confronted her about whether Gaston was the father of her baby. And he has allegedly said the girlfriend “disrespected” him. He reportedly punched her in the abdomen several times then fled.

The unnamed girlfriend began having contractions and went to the hospital where her baby girl was born. At only 6 months gestation baby Destiny Jayden Gatson weighed only 1 pound 9 ounces and according to the complaint the baby had

*”significant health problems, including bleeding on her brain”

The infant lived on life support until May 1. The baby’s mother asked Gaston to be present when the baby was taken off life support. The medical examiner ruled the baby’s death was due to prematurity and placenta abruption.

The girlfriend had allegedly been told that Gaston had gone to a funeral out of town on the date of her assault.

Police reportedly questioned Gaston the boyfriend, but he explained to them that he had been out of town at a funeral on the date it happened.

During the investigation it was noted that Gaston’s cellphone was used in the city on the date in question. And that the phone was used twice, 42 minutes before the assault and 4 minutes after the assault. A witness has placed him at a gas station near the scene of the assault.

According to what Peterson has told police, Gaston had picked him up on that date and the two of them had gotten drunk and high. Gaston then allegedly drove him to the apartment. Peterson did allegedly get paid $40 of the $200 he was promised. Peterson reportedly had become a new father just a few months prior to the assault.

Both Gatson and Petersen have been charged with 1st degree assault and 2nd murder.

The unnamed girlfriend reportedly had difficulty believing that Gaston could have been involved in the assault on her or the death of their baby. According to the lead investigator she has gone from disbelieving to angry.

I always marvel at the excuses that often come up when a woman gets pregnant unexpectedly.

She got pregnant”   usually it takes two.                                                                                  “It’s somebody else’s, not my kid” get a DNA test and you are off the hook.                                
I didn’t want a baby” again, it usually takes two and they make protection for men too. (something tells me this was most probably the real motivation)                                     
Don’t do the deed unless you are old enough to take responsibility. If you are old enough to do the deed, you are old enough to make sure you are covered.

Studies show that one of the top causes of death or injury to a pregnant woman is not the complications of pregnancy. It is the men in her life.

    First of all dont talk to her like that! Destiny was not dead when she was born. And Dameon didnt do this. I have a 3 year old with him and he couldnt do this. I think it was the coke Shyloe sniffin when she had that baby in her or maybe it ws all the other thing that you shouldnt be doing when you are pregnate. and to Dameons lil sis. We love you hun!!! Who cares what these ignoret people say and think when the truth comes out and he comes home to us they will all see that the cops are corupt and the news just wants more money and ratings!

    First off I would yank that poor 3 year old out of the hands of the mother that supports a baby killer…..if could have been your child and for some reason, that seems okay with you, otherwise you wouldn’t support a deadbeat. Second, if I were the mother who lost the child, I would move on with my life and get the hell away from the man that claims that he loves you, but yet was willing to risk your life to avoid his responsibilities…classy! What kind of life are you ladies making for yourselves? Do you not have a head on your shoulders? His family, as stated previously, is in denial. He’s a deadbeat and deserves to rot in hell. I sincerely hope that poor 3 year old never knows his dad and nevers knows where he came from.

    Ok, so i dated dameon briefly for about 4 months, we broke up about 2 weeks before he was arested but about a week or so before the incident me and him and a friend of mine were together and he asked me if there was any amount of money in this world that would make me kill someone. And then he asked me what about a baby. Now i thought i knew dameon too, obviously not. To the too other women…your both trying to stand behind a man that continued to lie to all of us, cheat on all of us, and most of all in a horrible person in general. I know there is nothing that anybody can really say to you ladies to make you open yours eyes and see wat you have gotten into but just know this love is a beautiful thing and if you continue to love somebody like him, you take such a beautiful thing and make it ugly because he does not deserve to be loved.
    The reason I wrote this was not to put you ladies down or to bash dameon because i have moved on with my life but its because i lost my son last year due to a premature birth and then 4 months ago i was a victim of domestic assualt by my babys father. He tried to kill me, but he is now in jail. But everyday i have to tell myself that i deserve better because i do still have love for him because he gave me my first child. open your eyes ladies.

  12. December 22, 2007 at 7:52 pm

    Lauryn, you are a wise woman. If you love someone and refuse to see their faults, you don’t love that person- you love a fantasy. And sooner or later you will get shocked and hurt at least emotionally if not physically because no one can live up to that fantasy image.

    You do deserve better for yourself and I hope you are able to convince yourself. Everyone is deserving of love and safety in that love. So keep telling yourself and look for a better relationship- one in which you can feel safe.

    Wow I came across this email due to the link to premature birth. I am sad to hear that this happened. You hear stories in the NICU about domestic violence and how it leads to premature birth. To the tiny angelbaby girl who has been taken due to this horrible act I am sorry that you endured so much in your short life. Karma will sort it out in the end. To the mummy of the lost angel please know that on the other side of the world your daughter won’t be forgotten.
    take care and I hope there is peace in your lives sometime soon.

    Ok so I had recently posted a comment on this about Dameon. I was blinded by him! He had a child together and could bring myself to believe he could do something like this! I have apologized to Shy about the things I said and now see what was in front of me the whole time! But Allie(Dameons future wife) wow you really need help! Why do you think that you are different? Hes still cheating on you when hes sitting in jail! With all the other females hes running game at! What a wonderful time to plan a wedding when hes been sitting in jail for almost two years wow what a good one you got! Maybe you havent been able to put things together that he said n did before this happened that makes you know that he had his baby killed but I have! You are one of those dumb females that thinks a man will change for you! Its called jail talk hun! He will tell you whatever you want to hear so you dont stop coming to see him and shit! Hes a loser I mean wow he really thinks hes gonna get out wow I can bet my life on it that he wont!!! Nobody’s gonna see anything in Sept. cuz nothing ever happens its been the same shit for almost two years for the past two Sept hes been saying he was coming home lol ya right! Why dont you worry about taking care of your daughter and not some loser thats sitting in jail! You both are some lames!!! Grow up hun! Other then him killing his child he is a bad soul! He will never be faithful to you! Do you really think your the first one that he has told hes gonna marry when he gets out? lol hell no he was telling me that shit he was telling Jackie who has been paying his lawyer all this time oh ya he was telling Shy that shit I mean you arent special! But do what ya do hun I just hope you see that a man like that really isnt worth the time and energy! I mean did he forget he has a son thats about to be 5? I guess you and his other tricks are more important to him the his son because he sure hasnt called him or sent him a letter! Dont losers that are sitting in jail come to the conclusion that family is more important then anything? I mean his dad has been in prison since he was a lil kids so he should no what its like! Because lol hahahaha even if he did get out he wont be able to see my son!!!! And I will make sure of that! Oh and I hope that when you pay all that money to talk to him on the phone for what a few mins you read this to him! I hope that you can grow up and step up take care of your daughter instead of some lame a$$ loser sitting in jail! DAMEON D GATSON IS GUILY OF KILLING HIS SWEET BABY! Why would some1 that doesnt know Shyloe but is real good friends with Lamo lol do something like this and play God! Its true hun he did it!!!

    Well Brooke I dont want him! Thats not what any of this is about! You only know what he let you know! I dont not let you see lil Daymein I dont live out there any more and Im sorry but he didnt want to go over there and Im not going to make him! As for Dameon I stuck by him for a year and what was he doing? well the same shit he always does LIE he cant tell the truth about anything! You dont know the things that he has said to me about this! do you know how many people that are his friends have said he asked them how much they would do that for? If he gets out great then my son can have a dad! But because of the thing he has done he did this to himself if he did it or not! If he would have been a real man and taken care of his family then he wouldnt have even been in the situation where he might have done this! Yes he loves Daymein but he was never a real father to him he didnt take care of him he didnt pay child support he wouldnt even get a job to pay our rent or at least help me because I sure had to work! He was to worried about having all these dumb lil hoes that gave him whatever he wanted Jackie, this Allie hoe, Lauryn, etc etc. So you want to sit here and say you know him better then any1 no Im sorry but I was in a relationship with him for 5 years! The relationship that two people have is different then between a brother and sister! So if he really cared he would send his son letters or something but no he doesnt oh he sent him a birthday card this year woohoo wow ! Do you know how this has effected Daymein? NO because you dont have to answer him when he asks if his dads going to get out of jail soon or why his dad is in jail do you? No I do nobody else has to but me! And Im sorry but its almost been two years now and every month he was saying that he was getting out and Im sorry but if his lawyer has all this evidence that was good for his case he would be out already! So to protect me and my son yes to me he never will! You dont know how this effected me so dont sit here and make assumptions because really you dont know whats going on! I have moved on from him yes I love him hes my sons father we had made life plans together our life was planned out and HE ruined it not me HE did its all on him! All this is on him! Yes I care about him and would rather have him not be in jail and most likely go to prison for the rest of his life! But the evidence that the prosecutor has out weights Paul saying that he didnt do it. Paul plead guilty so no matter what he has said to Daymeins lawyer its nothing now so yes I have givin up on him! And Brooke you are a good girl and I always did care about you and have nothing but love for you and yours but there are some people I dont want around my son! He doesnt like them and no its not you your sister or your mom! So Im sorry that you feel the way that you do but IDK thats on you really! I feel the way I do about the situation and thats that!

  22. Jennifer said,

    February 1, 2009 at 5:06 am

    And to who ever you are (gotta kno that) um you are just making yourself look dumb! Any apartment I have ever had has been in my name! Um his name is in my mouth because hes my sons father! Anyone that wants him lol thats funny hes a no good loser! I left him almost a year before he got with Shyloe! I didnt want him for what? Just keepin it real! And my daughters father um what? get your info right b4 you try to act like you know something lol

  23. Damos lil' sis said,

    February 7, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    February 18, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    I dont know any of you personally, but I do know this case very well. I understand that was Dameon is alleged to have done is horrific and completly selfish, but did anyone care to take the time to think that Shyloe was the one who made the final decision to take Destiny off life support? Its obvious that without the action of Paul Peterson, Destiny woud be alive; however, whos to say that without the actions of Shyloe that Destiny would also still be alive? There is no arguing that after suffering brain hemorraging of course Destiny would have sever problems…. but it a life with disabilities better than no life at all?? I think most people who suffer from disabilites would say yes — a life is better than no life. I am not taking sides here because I know there is a case to argue on both side. However I think you all need to look at both sides before you sit here and argue your emotions.

  25. Allie said,

    February 19, 2009 at 4:11 am

    Dameon didn’t do anything. He is an innocent man. Everyone know really knows dameon knows that Shyloe killed Destiny. Destiny would be alive today if not for her and she might have been ok. None of the medical things that could have been wrong were 100%. Dameon will be home jus as soon as the DA stop procrastinatin cuz they have NO EVIDENCE! you cant have evidence on an innocent man DUH. I love u d n you’ll be with ur family soon

  26. ~*~*~*~ said,

    February 24, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    I think the only way the DA will win this case is if they had charged Dameon with 2nd degree attempted murder or 1st degree assault. There is no way a jury will find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of Murder. I dont even think Paul Peterson should have plead guilty. He is in the same situation Dameon is in. If that baby wouldnt have been taken off life support she might still be alive.

  27. Allie said,

    March 16, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    Dameon is being charged with first degree assault. obviously whoever u are you dont know dameon cuz the charges are first degree murder, second degree murder and first degree assault. and he will be found not guilty on all of those charges becuase there is no might destiny would still be alive had her sorry ass “mother” (i wouldnt call her a mom at all) wouldnt have murdered her. I WISH I COULD HAVE MET YOU DESTINY YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN AN AMAZING STEP DAUGHTER! I’M SORRY YOUR MOM KILLED YOU. yOUR FATHER MISSES YOU AND STILL LOVES YOU. REST IN PEACE SWEETIE.

    ok yes i think about destiny every day i thank god that poor baby had one parent that cared about her (her dad) and i have not spoke to Dameon for a while but he is my brother and i love him very much.i have known dameon for about 14 years he is my brother and i think i kno my brother is not a child killer if he thinks its his or not my brother will be home with his wife very soon. i have not seen his wife yet but she is a very lucky woman because he has got to be one of the best men in this world. I am very sorry for Destiny she had no choice to live or die and just cuz that woman didnt want that beautiful baby dont mean no one else wanted her. i am sure dameon woulda took Destiny in a heart beat and i may only be 17 but i still woulda took destiny cuz she was a gift from god and didnt need to be killed by that woman. paul is at fault to he hit that woman but she killed MY FAMILY and put my brother into jail… Damo will be home soon and Destiny auntie loves you very much baby girl RIP

    Most of yall think u kno somethin but the one thing u all don’t kno is u all are goin off half truths and all lies if anybody has had a child u would kno the last thing to develop is the lungs and the brain I got to hold my neices hand in the hospital they said she had no motor functions that was a lie she could move after shy took her off life support she breathed on her own for a long time but her lungs wernt developed enough to continue the ultra sounds performed before the c section but after the assult showed no bleed it wasn’t untill after the c section that it appeared and the people that shy had tellin her to take my beutiful neice off life support was the police no doctors at all there are many things that none of u kno and none of u kno him better than me I’ve been with him over half my life and he is a wonderful person and father so only god can judge him if any body is to blame y destiny isn’t here it is shy for her unwillingness to take care of a handicaped child she didn’t even give my poor lil niece a chance to see how she continued to develop my mom takes care of the handicapped from all ages from children to adults there were plenty other options but the police pressued shy into doin it so they could charge a young man with murder I hate how u people could say these things about a good man my brother u should all be ashamed of yourselves the bible says judge not. It doesn’t say judge whoever u feel if u really want to know all the facts go to the trial untill then do not assume u know his whole family and friends the ones that have been around him we know the truth that he is innocent jen I understand u are hurt but it isn’t right to take lil daymein out of so many peoples lives we love him shy I feel your pain but don’t let he say she say cloud your mind to all others my lil sis and allie thank u for tryin we will all miss u destiny rip so please stop this nonsense this will be my first and last message cause I know that no jury in this world can prove beyond a resonable doubt that he is guilty we love u damo and miss u and destiny u will forever hold a special place in our hearts and we ALL can agree to that god bless u all the ones u support him and ev en those that do not

    How can some of you women be so damn ignorant? Sorry but some of you would be so much better off if you spent as much time getting an education and doing something productive with your lives instead of running after womanizing baby making criminal. I only heard of this case today while reading The Star Tribune; reading some of the comments from women supporting this monster made me sick to my stomach. I can’t believe there are so many clueless women in the Twin Cities. Stay in school, learn how to read and write, earn a college degree, seek out quality men (i.e. educated/employed), don’t have children before you’re married, and for crying out loud don’t bring children into this world that you can’t afford to take care of or with men who already have children with other women. Damn.. I feel disgusted by some of you women and so so sorry for your poor children who are destined to grow up just as backward and underprivileged. Stop this madness people and stop the cycle of violence and poverty … education is your only ticket out!

    How many girls are on here that say they are with this BABY KILLER? And you all LOVE him? He is playing all of you stupid little girls. Some advice: MOVE ON. More than likely he will get the sentence the prosecution is after; life without parole. It is clear that he planned this. He paid the guy 40 of the 200 dollars promised. He DROVE him there. He asked people if, for the right amount of money, would they kill someone? Kill a BABY? All of you claim to know him so well? Obviously not, if you think he wouldn’t kill an innocent baby. He did it, and he will rot for it. And all of you stupid little girls can sit and let him run his game on you. You look just as dumb as he does.

    The Jury has spoken and the punk will rot! Damo- I won’t tell you not to drop the soap. You will have no choice and you’ll be getting exactly what you deserve! While those who abide by the law and continue doing what’s right for our communities, enjoying the warm summer days and the cool crisp winters that MN has to offer, you’ll be holed up in that stinky confined hole listening to all the other (loud) S.O.B’s that you so deserve to be with. I have no sympathy for you and if you’re looking for some, go to the dictionary (if you know what that is) and look somewhere between the words shit and syphilis. I do however pray for the soul of that little tiny baby who had no chances of enjoying the warm summer and cool winters that she has lost out on. I pray that Shyloe moves on and continues in the direction she has chosen to take, as it’s a good one. Cheers, Damo- enjoy your watered-down Kool-Aid with delight!!!

    I hope that everyone on this page find peace in their hearts. I see that many people are hurt and are lashing out in terrible ways. This little girl did not deserve any of this and had no chance at a life. While everyone else is still bitching about there love for someone that cut this humans life short.

    Wow, really that is all I can say.

    This man sounds like a true joke to begin with. Manipulative, womanizing and finally a murderer. Women need to be strong and independent, do not hold on to these men who are in no way deserving of your attention and affection. You are strong, smart and beautiful and to all the “haters” the best thing that you can do is to go out and prove them wrong. When someone tells you that you can’t, excel in it!

    This man is clearly going to prison for the rest of his life and while I do feel bad for his family and sisters (they did not make the choice to murder) I hope they realize the truth now. It’s hard to hear that someone you thought you knew could do something so horrible. I sincerely hope that Shyloe turns the hurt into strength and becomes something amazing. And to whoever decided to turn the poor child’s death into her fault, shame on you, I mean really? A disabled child is one thing, but believe me when I say from a medical professional’s standpoint that there is a clear difference in a disability and having to be hooked up to a ventilator and to be tube fed for the rest of your life in a vegetative state. The decision this poor woman had to make would have been one of the hardest that I can imagine, but it is selfish to force your child to live through a life of torture when they couldn’t even survive without the aid of a machine to breath.

    To all the women involved. I am not a naive woman who has no sense of the struggles women can find themselves in. But find yourself a good man. I had my first child, unplanned at 17, but I did not sit on my hands and hope for someone to come take care of me, meanwhile shack up with the first “street pharmacist” I could find. No, I put myself through school, I set an example for my daughter and I found a wonderful BLACK MAN (for all the ignorant/racist people out there) who has put himself through college despite being born and raised in the worst places in Minneapolis and is now pursuing his MASTERS degree.

    You are in charge of your own destiny and you have to be the one to make the first move. Do you have any idea what types of grants and scholarships are available to single mothers? It almost makes me feel guilty, but get out there and research it, because getting a degree these days is the nearly the ONLY way you’re going to get yourself to a point of being independent.

    Use that wonderful mind that God has given you, and make something of yourself.

    While this entire situation is tragic, I can’t believe this guy will do life in prison. People get abortions everyday because prochoice believers think that abortion isn’t murder since it is just a fetus.

    Even though I don’t believe in abortion, under the current laws, he should only be charged for assualt. Why is it that in this country abortion is OK? Yet this guy is now being charged with murder? None of it makes sense to me.

  47. bb said,

    November 15, 2009 at 4:13 am

    I think what this guy did is absolutely horrible. However, his sentence is way to harsh compared to what violent criminals get time for. This guy simply didn’t want to have another kid. In this country everyone is desensitized to murder. We have people getting abortions everyday and the doctors are not being charged with murder.

    Why is this guy getting a life sentence? he must have had a really shitty lawyer!!!

    Oh my stars! My husband is in jail with this man but he don’t deserve any thoughts, prayers, or judgements from anyone. His judgement day will come when he meets his maker and that is the best justice anyone could hope for. To the baby girl who lost her fight with a grown man, I didn’t know you but I think of you every time I look at my daughter. Your death was not in vain and you are remembered, if not by the people who should, you are thought of often by a this mother! RIP baby girl!

    Is an unborn baby a baby? In this country people need to make up their minds. You can not allow people to have abortions because it is not life yet, but on the other hand convict this suck XXX with murder. His way of destroying life was a lot less gruesome than what “doctors” do at abortion clinics everyday. When is this country going to wake up. Life is life whether it is an unborn baby or not. No one not even the mother should be allowed to murder an unborn child.

    Until human beings unite on this basic concept you can not consider this guy a murderer. He is only going along with what millions of people do every day. That is the problem here is that people are desesitized to murder. If a baby is inconvenient at the moment people think it is OK to murder the baby, but it is not called murder it is called abortion.

    How can this guy be a murderer?????? Wake up America …..if you don’t like what this guy did then how can you be supportive of abortion. This sickens me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    ok forreal dude if ya’ll aint family or friends of damo u aint got any right to say anything u dont kno tha man behind tha mask…. so shut up…. and to u “he got life he ant comeing home wen u stupid people going to get” ur wrong… all of u r wrong when u say he aint comin home…. he gotta come home & he will. soon…. very very very soon…… so screw every last person that says anything bad about Dameon, Me, His wife, his daughter or anyone of his friends or family…. its Shyloe u should be talkin bout, not Damo…. SHE TOOK DESTINY OFF THE LIFE SUPPORT!!!! that lil girl coulda lived a perfectly normal life & Shyloe was out SHOPPING THE NEXT DAY!!!!! she didnt want that poor beautiful baby girl… if she did she would have given her a fighting chance when they saw she was breathing on her own. they didnt have to kill her…. Shyloe didnt want my niece…. and that hurts Shyloe….. if my baby needed life support for a few weeks to be able to live FINE but u u just take her off and let her suffer when she WANTED TO LIVE she didnt have to even try to breath on her own but she did it for a very long time mind u….. so its w/e if any one shoulda been found guilty of murder its Shyloe…. not Damo…. so w/e i still love Damo and Destiny, i love u baby…. had ur mama put u into foster care i would taken u….. at least u would be alive… and having a good, normal life with ur cousins and ur family…. ur aunt loves u baby girl…. and i love u damo…. cant wait to see u home….

    she talks all this sh!t but she makes facebook and myspace pages for dameon…..just so she can add his “friends” and be nosey. she posts updates on how she’s devistated that he got life in prison. she doesnt give a crap about him or shyloe or destiny. all she cares about is running her biiiig mouth

  74. eyeswideopen said,

    February 26, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    AMEN!!! thats something that all of these little ignorant girls have neglected to consider. Dameon is surely not innocent in this, but neither is Shyloe. She did IN FACT make the decision to take the baby off life support because she wasnt woman enough to take care of a disabled child. This should have been considered when they convicted him.

    I can’t believe all of you so called “women” with children, just aired out your dirty laundry on a public website. Just so you know, your language, gossip and ignorance will guarantee that NOBODY will respect you once they read this. Jennifer, I hope your child never sees any of this. Bad enough his dad is a convicted murderer, now his mother is a bonafyde IDIOT. Stand up and ve the woman in the situation and keep your mouth shut. Shyloe, why would you post something with so many cuss words, attempting to hurt everyones feelings…you only made yourself look childish. Why dont you instead explain why you took that child off of life support??? Future wife, God help you and your child…thats all I have to say about you. Lil sis, maybe you’re too young to understand whats real right now, but the truth will come to light later on in life. And about Dameon, he may not have been a bad person before this, but he did make a VERY bad decision, one that he MUST suffer the consequences for and that is the point. You people dont have to show that you love him by bashing everyone that seeks justice for Destiny. Accept that he is guilty, but forgive him in your heart and stay by his side if thats what you choose. I almost feel bad knowing that he had such horrible two-faced people like you guys in his life. Because now ALL OF YOU are so called “friends”. I see it, and I think you are all pathetic. ~EYESWIDEOPEN~
