Dakota Bland

West Plains, Mo. — The 25-year-old West Plains man accused of shooting into a home here has been bound over on two lst degree assault charges and two charges of armed criminal action.
Altogether, Dakota Bland was charged with six counts, including unlawful use of a weapon and first degree burglary.
Judge Truman Wiles presided over the preliminary hearing Tuesday.
Bland will appear in Division 1 Circuit Court before Judge David Paul Evans for arraignment on Nov. 2 at 2 p.m.
He is accused of shooting into a West Plains home and wounding two men in the house. James and Rick Blair were both injured in the attack.
The man who shot at the Blairs was identified as wearing a red hoodie with a bandana over his face. A witness said Bland leaned in through the window on a couch and fired his gun.
Bland was recorded by detention center authorities in a phone conversation with an inmate in which he discussed the shooting. He said he was the “stick-up kid”. Bland also said he went at the house with his “gun blazing.”Police found the hoodie and bandanas at the place Bland had been living.
Bland is being held on $200,000 bond in the Howell County Jail. He is represented by public defender Bryce Crowley of West Plains.
