Who was Kaazim Campbell?
DAVIE, Fla. – Authorities identified a man involved in a shooting with police Wednesday inside a Davie neighborhood as 26-year-old Kaazim Campbell.
Campbell faces charges of carrying a concealed firearm, firing a firearm in public and improper display of a firearm.
According to his arrest report, Campbell lives in the Park City West retirement community with his grandparents.
Police said the grandfather asked Campbell to leave his home after they had an argument about Campbell not paying the rent and not taking his prescription medication for his bipolar disorder / schizophrenia.
Authorities said Campbell returned home around 5 p.m. but his grandfather had left him out and told him that he was not welcome.
According to his arrest report, Campbell sat in a chair under the garage and remained there for several minutes until his grandfather and two other relatives left the house.
Police said one of the family members recorded Campbell on his cell phone because he was still extremely angry at his grandfather for their earlier argument.
As the group stood in the garage, Campbell reached into his backpack, pulled out a pistol and fired five shots at the tires of two of his relatives’ vehicles that were parked in the driveway, authorities said.
That’s when officers responded and he began firing at police, forcing them to return fire, authorities said.
Police said Campbell was shot and taken to a local hospital for treatment for his injuries.
No officer was injured.
Investigators recovered two weapons from the scene.
The two officers involved in the shooting were placed on paid leave, pending the outcome of the investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
