Warrants were served late Thursday night, and between 3 and 4AM Friday morning, 21-year-old Bernell Pollard was processed, booked and charged with first-degree murder.
U.S. Marshals and the NOPD plucked Pollard and three others they say were harboring him out of a Tullis drive apartment in Algiers. Bernell Pollard is said to be the second shooter in the stray-bullet death of little Jeremy Galmon Sunday in Central City.
Bernell’s cousin, Jamiron Pollard, is the other suspected-shooter and was put away Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder after his arrest.
Three others were also arrested with Bernell Pollard. Bruce Pollard, a cousin of Bernell and Jamiron, Derielle Bernard and Joshua Franklin. The three are charged with accessories after the fact to first-degree murder.
