For Immediate Release

Dec. 21, 2016

Two Kansas City have been charged in the Nov. 30, 2015, fatal shooting of Walter Pollard, 21, on Kansas City's east side, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Dayquan Bowman, dob: 10-7-1996, and Rodney J. Mitchell, 2-17-1997, face Murder 2nd Degree, Robbery 1st Degree and two counts of Armed Criminal Action.*

A co-defendant, Joshua Lee, was charged last year in connection with Pollard's murder. Lee faces charges of second-degree murder, armed criminal action and attempted robbery.

Lee is accused in the killing of Walter Pollard, 21, whose body was found on the front porch of a home in the 2300 block of Hardesty Avenue about 1:15 a.m. Monday.

According to court records, Lee told police that a drug deal had been arranged with Pollard, who was shot by others who were involved. Lee told police that he took Pollard’s cellphone and money after he was killed and tried to destroy the phone to erase messages between himself and Pollard.

Prosecutors requested a bond of $250,000 for each defendant.
