UPDATE: Man wanted for attempted murder in Rockingham arrested in Charlotte


ROCKINGHAM — A man wanted in connection to a shooting last Friday night has been arrested.

Adrian Lamar Campbell, 28, was arrested in Charlotte on Thursday through a “collaborative effort” between the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and detectives with the Rockingham Police Department, according to Chief Billy Kelly.

Campbell is accused of shooting into a vehicle and a home on Glenwood Avenue Friday night, sending on person to the hospital with a bullet wound in the leg, Kelly told the Daily Journal.

He is charged with: one count of attempted first-degree murder; one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury; discharging a firearm into an occupied property; possession of a firearm by a felon; and three counts of injury to personal property.

He was booked into the Richmond County Jail shortly after 3:30 under a $3 million secured bond.

Campbell was out on bail after Hamlet police charged him for allegedly shooting someone seven or eight times on Monroe Avenue and firing shots into a home near Buttercup Drive in October.

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office also charged Campbell last October — along with two other suspects — for allegedly forcing a man to hand over his car keys.

He is scheduled to appear in superior court on April 3 on the following charges: three counts of possession of a firearm by a felon; robbery with a dangerous weapon; felony conspiracy; attempted first-degree murder; assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury; and discharging a firearm into an occupied property.

He also has an April 20 appearance in district court on misdemeanor charges of assault with a deadly weapon and injury to personal property.

He was shot in a Cauthen Drive parking lot in July of 2015 — less than three months after being released from prison following a 2009 conviction on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and discharging a firearm into an occupied property in Richmond County.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show that just weeks after being shot, he was back behind bars after his probation was revoked and was released in May of last year.

His first convictions were in Richmond County in November of 2006 on felony charges of assault with attempt to inflict serious injury and common law robbery, two misdemeanor counts of assault on an officer or state employee and a single count of simple assault or affray.

Records show he was incarcerated for 14 months on those charges.

While locked up, he was convicted in 2007 on misdemeanor charges from Scotland County: assault on a female, domestic criminal trespassing, assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of carrying a concealed weapon.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
