Police: Motive unknown in man’s killing
Friends and family have placed a white cross with roses and flowers at the spot where Tarrance Roshawn Campbell, 24, was shot to death Tuesday night. The memorial remained there Friday afternoon at the 300 block of N. Hall Street.
High Point police said Friday they are still investigating the killing. They don’t know why Campbell was killed, and they don’t have a suspect.
Antonio Martin grew up with Campbell. They met in the sixth grade and both attended Southern High School. For years, they would spend afternoons at Martin’s house, and Campbell would leave around 9:30 every night. Martin said it was their routine.
The two friends had been hanging out together the day Campbell was killed.
Police received the 911 call about gunshots being fired in the neighborhood about an hour after Campbell left Martin’s house. Martin didn’t hear the shots from his house, he said.
Close to 1 a.m., Campbell’s cousin woke up Martin to tell him his friend had been shot. Martin said he noticed Campbell’s car was facing toward the neighborhood like he was on his way back to his house, not leaving.
Martin says he can’t imagine who would want to hurt his friend. “He was a good dude,” he said. “He would help you out if you needed anything.”
High Point police ask that anyone with information about this crime to call High Point Crimestoppers at 889-4000.
