On December 18, 2020, a man was standing in the parking lot of the NBN Market, which is located at 2344 Pendleton Street. While he was there, he was shot and died. Surveillance footage, according to the police, showed the shooting taking place. According to the police, a man walks up to the victim, says something to him, then pulls out a revolver and shoots him. A photo lineup was used, and two witnesses were able to pick out Campbell as the gunman.
On January 13, 2021, a man informed police that he and his uncle were pulling into the Save N Fill located at 1341 Winchester Road when an unknown individual fired several shots at him from the passenger side of a small black SUV. The victim told police that he and his uncle were trying to flee the scene when the rounds were fired.
The man took a blow to the shoulder as a result. The victim told the police that he did not know the shooter and had no idea why he was targeted. He also stated that he had no idea why he was shot. He was rushed to the hospital, where it was determined that the damage he sustained had rendered him paralyzed from the waist down. Six days after the initial incident, a tip from CrimeStoppers led police to Campbell. Following this, a photo lineup was used to allow the victim to select Campbell as the person who had shot him.
He was taken into custody on Thursday, and at this time he is being held on a bond totalling $900,000—$300,000 for the accusations of attempted murder, and $600,000 for the charge of murder. On Monday, he is scheduled to appear in court.
