Man arrested after opening fire on victim in Louisiana
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Authorities say a man accused of shooting a victim in the middle of the street has been arrested in Louisiana.
WBRZ-TV reports that Meshach Campbell was arrested at his mother’s house after the shooting occurred Sunday afternoon. The police report states the victim was visiting a family member when she saw Campbell drive by the home several times.
Authorities say Campbell passed by one more time before he stopped the vehicle, got out the car and started walking toward the victim. As he approached the victim, words were exchanged before Campbell pulled out a gun and fired three shots.
The victim, whose name was not released, pulled out her own gun and returned fire. Campbell fled the scene.
Campbell is facing charges of violation of a protection order, stalking, and attempted second-degree murder.
