Officers were called to the Park City West neighborhood off State Road 84 around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday after reports that Campbell had shot into an unoccupied car.
According to his complaint affidavit, Campbell and his grandfather got into a fight because the 26-year-old hadn’t paid his rent and was not taking medication for Bipolar/ Schizophrenic disorder.
The fight escalated when Campbell pulled out a gun and shot five rounds “recklessly” into a car’s tires, according to the affidavit.READ MORE: Fort Lauderdale Shaken Baby Case From 1984 Leads To Murder Charge
“We weren’t sure if it was firecrackers, fireworks, or bullets,” said Harold Bardino, who said he lives four houses down from Campbell and his grandfather.
