LIVINGTON – A Denham Springs man who surrendered after a shooting on Dec. 31 will face murder charges after the victim died, according to Livingston Parih Sheriff Jason Ard.
Michael Meade, 38, will be charged with second-degree murder, Ard said.
Meade has been in the Livingston Parish Detention Center since he turned himself in hours after shooting off Lotts Lane in Watson. He was originally booked on two counts of attempted second-degree murder, home invasion and court costs, according to booking records. Total bond was set at $200,400.
“Today, around noon, we learned the victim in this case died as a result of his injuries – multiple gunshot wounds,” Ard said.
The victim was identified as Jeremy Campbell, 39, of Shreveport.
“The evidence and witness statements tell us this was not a random act,” Ard said.
“Detectives learned the suspect and the victim did argue earlier that day.
“That argument ended when the suspect drove to the victim’s location and fired his handgun multiple times in the victim’s direction,” the sheriff said.
“As a result, a life is lost and families have been shattered,” he said. “Detectives are still working the case.”
