Man arrested in Jefferson City killing

One of two men wanted in the death of a Lincoln University student was arrested Monday.

The Jefferson City Police Department said U.S. Marshals in Texas found and arrested Michael Bouchee, 19, on a warrant for second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the shooting of D’Angelo Bratton-Bland, 23, on Dawson Street in December.

Police have said Bratton-Bland was an innocent bystander who was the victim of a random act. Police found spent shell casings outside the 208 Dawson St. residence near where Bratton-Bland was shot and found “several weapon accessories” inside the residence, the department said in a news release.

Witnsses placed Bouchee at the residence during the shooting and said he had a handgun and pointed the weapon at where people were standing outside cars parked on East Capitol Avenue, the department said.

Deangelo Frazier, 29, is also charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action and is already jailed on other charges in the Missouri Department of Corrections, the release said. Frazier was arrested on Jan. 14 for violating probation on unrelated charges.

Witnesses also placed Fraizer at the residence with a gun and said Frazier and Bouchee were pointing weapons and yelling at people standing near cars, the release said.

Arrangements are being made to bring Bouchee back to Missouri.

Lt. David Williams, with the Jefferson City Police Department, said that because neither Bouchee or Frazier are in Cole County at the moment, the process of filing charges for the shooting are different.

Bratton-Bland was a senior and president of Lincoln’s Student Government Association.
