18 and 19 Year Olds Face Multiple Felony Charges

Posted 7/23/2013 12:59 PM by MDGREGORY

On July 21, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Damon Anderberg responded to a business near the 144000 block of North Newport Highway on a shooting call. The adult female complainant told Deputy Anderberg that she and her boyfriend had been shot at multiple times by three men in a vehicle between 2:30 and 3:00 a.m. that morning.

The complainant told Deputy Anderberg that she and her boyfriend were at a store at the intersection of Day-Mt. Spokane and Newport Highway. She said they saw 19-year-old Jarrod Markosian, 18-year-old Jesse Pollard and another adult male at the store. She said her boyfriend and Markosian have had issues since high school and do not get along. She said her boyfriend and Markosian exchanged words, then all parties left the store.

The complainant said she and her boyfriend were behind Markosian's vehicle as they traveled north on Boston Road. She said Markosian must have seen them and appeared to slow down intentionally. She said they passed Markosian in an attempt to get away from their vehicle and make it to her boyfriend's house safely.

She continued to tell Deputy Anderberg they felt threatened enough that they ultimately pulled into a driveway and turned the lights off to get away from Markosian. She said once they arrived at her boyfriends they saw Markosian's vehicle pull into the driveway and heard five gunshot blasts from the vehicle. She said the vehicle left, returned a couple minutes later and they heard two additional gunshot blasts.

The complainant said she and her boyfriend left in an attempt to contact the occupants of the vehicle. Both she and her boyfriend said they contacted the occupants of the vehicle nearby, her boyfriend exited the vehicle and they heard a single gunshot blast. Her boyfriend said he heard something "whiz" by his head.

Deputy Anderberg and Deputy D. Smith contacted Markosian, Pollard and the other adult male that was inside Markosian's vehicle. Pollard admitted both he and Markosian had fired rounds from a .22 cal. handgun at the complainant’s boyfriends shop from the vehicle. Markosian initially denied shooting the gun, and then later admitted to firing rounds in the air at the complainant’s boyfriend’s residence.

• Markosian was booked into the Spokane County Jail on two-counts of 2nd Degree Assault and Reckless Endangerment.
• Pollard was booked into jail on two-counts of 2nd Degree Assault.
• There was no evidence the third male in the vehicle fired any rounds.
