Man shot at North County condo after neighbors complain of party, drugs


CARLSBAD, Calif. — A man was shot at a Carlsbad condo shortly after someone called police to complain about drugs and partying at the home, officials said.

The shooting happened at the condos on Tide Court near Paseo Del Norte, just east of Interstate 5, around 3:30 a.m., according to Carlsbad Police Department. Authorities said they got two calls asking for officers to come to the home: The first was “drug and party related,” the second was to report the sound of gunfire.

When officers arrived they found what “looked to bullet holes in the walls of the unit” but no victim, CPD said. Investigators later determined that a 33-year-old man dropped off at a nearby hospital with gunshot wounds was likely the victim.

Just before 10 a.m., officers arrested the suspected shooter, 36-year- old probationer Malique Travon Campbell, in his hometown of Banning, Reyes said. He was booked into county jail in Vista on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a firearm.

Anyone with information was asked to call CPD at 760-931-2197.
