An 18-year-old man who was 17 at the time of a fatal shooting in Brooklyn Center pleaded guilty to murder on Friday.

Police found Bowman lying in the middle of the street near Unity Avenue North and Ponds Drive North at around 8:50 p.m. on April 23, 2023. Court documents note that he was shot seven to nine times. Bowman was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Charging documents state that investigators were able to link Barrow-Newell to the shooting thanks to surveillance video and his cellphone location data.

That surveillance video also showed Bowman walking away from an apartment building in the area about 20 minutes before the shooting and Barrow-Newell driving the suspect vehicle, patrolling the area. Eventually, the two crossed paths and the Kia was seen speeding away from where Bowman was found. Shots fired calls were reported less than a minute later.
