Man faces attempted murder charges in county

November 23, 2006

A 28-year-old man who allegedly shot his best friend in a dispute over money faces a slew of charges, including attempted murder, Washington County District Court records show.

Darnell Monroe Campbell, whose last known address was New York City, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, robbery, armed robbery, carrying a handgun, using a handgun in the commission of a violent crime and theft of less than $500, court records show.

Campbell was being brought from New Jersey to face charges, court records showed Wednesday.

Campbell allegedly shot a man in the leg during an argument over money on the night of March 9 on the 1000 block of Security Road, a charging document states. Before the shooting, a witness reported hearing, "I'm gonna get my money one way or the other."

The victim's girlfriend's sister told police a man later identified as Campbell approached her asking about the victim, and he allegedly told her he planned to kill the victim because the victim owed him $1,800. A few moments later, she said, she heard a gunshot.

The shooter allegedly left the scene in a black vehicle.

When police arrived at the scene, the victim told him he had been shot in his left calf, but he refused to provide other information. He was treated at Washington County Hospital, the document states.
