MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 28-year-old Chaska man has been arrested for allegedly being involved in drive-by shootings in both Prior Lake and Shakopee, according to police.
Shakopee police say Luke Machenzie Campbell faces charges of first- and second-degree assault, drive-by shooting and possession of ammunition or firearm by a person convicted for a crime of violence.
According to police, Campbell was arrested in connection to a drive-by shooting that occurred on June 17 in Prior Lake.
During that investigation, detectives received a tip that Campbell was also involved in a March 7 shooting involving a Metro Mobility bus in Shakopee. In that incident, the sole passenger, a 45-year-old man from Savage, was struck by a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest.
Witnesses told police that Campbell has a history of shooting his gun while driving his motorcycle and vehicle, and that he has been seen shooting his gun from a bridge on Highway 169 multiple times. Additionally, witnesses told police that Campbell shot his gun from his vehicle on March 7.
Police say traffic camera surveillance show a vehicle similar to Campbell’s in the area at the same time. Cellphone records also put him in the area at the same time, police said.
Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to contact Shakopee police at 952-233-9400 or text the word “spdtips” and the tip information to 847411. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
