Gun shop owner killed during training class

By Kelly Cantwell –

James Baker, 64, was accidentally shot and killed while holding a concealed carry training course at Kay Jay Gun Shop on June 18.
Baker was the owner of Kay Jay Gun Shop, located at 3023 Lindale Mt. Holly Road in Monroe Township, according to a press release from the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.
The Clermont County Communications Center received a call at 12:44 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office responded, along with EMS personnel who were attempting to save Baker. While deputies were interviewing participants, they learned that a class participant discharged a handgun while doing weapon malfunction drills.
The bullet struck Baker, who was sitting in another room. Baker could not be resuscitated by EMS personnel and was pronounced dead at 3:12 p.m. He was taken to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office for an autopsy, according to the release.
The Clermont County Prosecutor’s Office is currently investigating the incident and once the investigation is finished, the office will decide if criminal charges should be made, according to a release from the Clermont County Prosecutor’s Office.
Kevin Reed, a customer, described Baker as a person who always had a smile on his face.
“He was very friendly, very personable,” Reed said.
Baker was concerned about customer safety, and he always took time with his customers to answer any questions or concerns.
“He was for the customer,” Reed said.
He also described Baker as a family man, an animal lover and someone who cared about his community.
