Man killed at North Memphis apartment complex identified

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis police have released the name of a man shot and killed earlier this week at a Memphis apartment complex.

Police say 28-year-old Antwan Campbell was shot and killed at Villages of Harrison Creek Apartments near Jackson and National Tuesday evening. Investigators initially said the man who shot Campbell was a security guard but the apartment complex has not confirmed that he was an employee.

Police say two firearms were recovered from the scene. According to investigators, the man who they say shot and killed Campbell had a valid handgun carry permit.

The company that manages the apartment complex told us things escalated after Campbell was asked to leave the property. According to a representative with Applewood Property Management, Campbell was being unruly and had been banned.

We spoke to Campbell’s brother Wednesday who said he wants to know why things ended the way they did.

“He was a father of two young girls. He had a newborn baby and he got a 14-year-old. I’m so close to my brother. We normally talk everyday. Sunday was my last time seeing him,” said Michael Vincent.

The management company says the apartment complex has state-of-the-art 360-degree cameras and the entire incident was captured on video.

We’re working to learn more details about the man who shot Campbell. While police initially identified him as a security guard, the management company says they’re unable to release certain details because of the ongoing investigation. Police say he stayed on the scene after the shooting.

This is still an ongoing homicide investigation, according to investigators.
