Officers found a man in Brookside Park who had been shot several times. He was later identified as Robinson and pronounced dead at the scene.

Surveillance video placed Robinson and at least two others in a vehicle that belonged to Campbell’s girlfriend near the park around the time of the shooting. The vehicle was later spotted driving away at a high rate of speed.

Detectives later found several pieces of evidence at the scene, including two live shotgun rounds.

Campbell was previously arrested for a different homicide on Dec. 3, 2019, according to court documents. Witnesses in the murder investigation identified him as the shooter.
