Man convicted of murder and 2 counts of attempted murder by Charleston jury


After a week-long trial, a Charleston County jury found Montrelle Lamont Campbell guilty of one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder, according to the Scarlett A. Wilson, a solicitor with the Ninth Judicial Circuit.

Assistant Solicitor Chad Simpson recounted the events that happened on Saturday, September, 19, 2015.

Simpson said Campbell had been involved in an altercation with female residents of a Norman Street home to which he returned to days later at night when residents were holding a small social gathering.

Campbell fired at least 14 bullets from an AR-15 into the rear window and door while children were asleep in the home while several residents and guests played cards inside, Simpson said.

Several of the shots hit objects in the home and also injured the head of one victim, Simpson said.

But a gunshot wound to the chest of Antwan Frost, 32, of Charleston ended up being fatal, Simpson said.
