An Anza man and an Escondido man face murder charges after being arrested over the weekend in connection with the fatal shooting of a man in Anza last week, authorities said.
Maxwell Hakole Kalah Reynolds, 28, of Anza and Brandon Noll Pollard , 27, of Escondido, are suspects in Wednesday night’s shooting, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Department officials and county booking records. In addition to murder, Pollard is also accused of violating parole stemming from a prior conviction.
The victim, whose identity had not yet been released by coroner’s officials, turned up at a fire station along Highway 371 in Anza about 11:35 p.m. suffering from gunshot wounds, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said in a written statement.
Paramedics were unable to save the victim, who was soon pronounced dead.
“During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that the shooting occurred at a property located in the area of Tripp Flats Road and Bautista Canyon (Road) in Anza,” according to the statement.
Investigators identified Reynolds as a suspect in the fatal shooting and arrested him Friday, authorities said. Pollard was identified and arrested on Saturday.
No information regarding a motive in the deadly shooting was available.
According to county booking records, bail for Pollard and Reynolds was set at $1 million each pending their initial court appearances, scheduled Wednesday in Riverside County Superior Court.
Anyone with information was urged to Central Homicide Investigator Barajas at 760-393-3522, or 951-955-2777.
