An Illinois man on probation and awaiting trial on burglary and robbery charges is now accused of killing a teen last month.
On May 29, around 12:45 p.m., Moline police said they were called to investigate a report of a gunshot victim.
Once there, police found Kielan J. Sims, 18, who was taken to UnityPoint Trinity hospital, where he died, according to authorities.
Andrew Davis, 26, was arrested for the murder and charged with first-degree murder, but no motive for the shooting has been released, police said.
Police did not detail if the two men knew each other.
The Dispatch-Argus reported Davis is currently on conditional discharge in Rock Island County, Illinois and is awaiting trial in Scott County, Illinois.
On Aug. 2, 2019, Davis was sentenced to 30 months probation for possession of a stolen vehicle, police said. On Sept. 22, 2020, his probation was converted to non-reporting conditional discharge, authorities said.
Then on March 29, 2021, Davis was arrested and charged with second-degree robbery and burglary.
Davis was released from jail on April 13 after posting bail, and a trial date was scheduled for August, authorities said.
There was no indication on whether or not Davis was charged for violating the terms of his conditional discharge due to the robbery charges, the report noted.
Davis was arrested by Muscatine (Iowa) police and was being held in the Muscatine County Jail on a $500,000 cash-only bond pending his extradition to Rock Island County, police said. Both cities are part of the Quad Cities on the Iowa-Illinois border.
Police said the investigation into the murder of Sims is ongoing.
