Crime Of The Week: Sept. 9, 2008


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Crime Stoppers needs help solving a murder in downtown Nashville.

The victim was killed in a drive-by shooting on Fourth Avenue South.

It happened in the middle of the day on the Fourth of July.

Police said they have no leads in the case.

Darsean Campbell and his friends were driving on Fourth Avenue South near Cameron Street around 3 p.m.

Witnesses said a red car with several passengers pulled up next to them and someone started shooting.

"Mister Darsean Campbell was shot once and pronounced dead on the scene," said Metro detective Derry Baltimore. "The two other victims -- friends in the car - were injured and crashed the vehicle into a light pole."

Campbell's friends were also hit by bullets. Witnesses could only tell police they saw people in a red car.

They could not describe the gunman.

"At this time I have no leads," Baltimore said. "If anyone out there may have been on this street on Fourth Avenue and Cameron Street on that day or heard something in the community, if they don't mind giving Crime Stoppers a call, we'd appreciate it."

Police are pretty sure somebody saw something and can help them solve the case. Witnesses seem to be reluctant about coming forward.

"You'll be totally anonymous," Baltimore said. "Whoever calls in you will not be subpoenaed to court. In fact, I will never even talk to you."

Police said they don't have a motive for the shooting or the murder. If anyone knows anything about the murder of Darsean Campbell, they should call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. The information could be worth up to $1,000 and callers can remain anonymous.
