Orlando, FL. - A tragic shooting on Watch Hill Road has left a community in mourning after officers responded to reports of shots fired on the evening of March 21, 2024. Upon arrival, authorities discovered Robert G. Bowen, 52, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the driveway of his residence at 4431 Watch Hill Road.

Emergency services rushed Bowen to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. The incident has sparked a swift and intensive investigation by local law enforcement.

Through their efforts, investigators identified two suspects in connection with the homicide. Kendrion Dow, 19, has been named as one of the shooters. Dow, already in custody for unrelated firearm offenses, was swiftly linked to the crime. The second suspect, 16-year-old Justin Copeland, was apprehended by US Marshals after a brief search.

Both suspects now face multiple charges, including First Degree Murder, Robbery with a Firearm, Fraudulent Use of Credit Cards, and Unlawful Possession of Stolen Credit/Debit Cards. Authorities believe the motive behind the killing was robbery, as stolen credit and debit cards belonging to the victim were found in the possession of the suspects.
