Campbell arrived at Frederick’s apartment to confront him about an altercation the two had at the apartment complex about a week ago. When Frederick answered the door, Campbell apparently threatened him and then produced a handgun from his waistband. Frederick, who was also armed, then fired several shots from his gun, striking Campbell.

Frederick provided a statement to homicide investigators and was released.
