Judge hopes settlement can be reached in Ann Campbell shooting case

Published 10:37am Thursday, October 11, 2012

Another of Campbell’s sons, Bailey Mays, was also shot but fled to a relative’s house on the same piece of property off County Road 69 in the Enterprise community.

According to Cobb’s testimony, Mays, who was 15 at the time of the shooting, told officers he was asleep on the couch in the living room when he heard gunshots. He then saw Michael Campbell crawling down a hallway that led from a bedroom, pleading with Ann Campbell not to shoot him again.

Cobb testified that Michael Campbell appeared to still be breathing when officers first arrived but that he was not responsive and died before he could be transported to a hospital.

After shooting Michael Campbell a third time, Ann Campbell started toward Mays and said, “We don’t have to live like this anymore.”

Mays tried to exit the residence but found the front door locked. He escaped out a back door and later realized he had been shot in the thigh.

The weapon believed to have been used in the shooting, along with a clip, was found in the residence after a search warrant had been obtained, Cobb said.

    I have followed this story from the beginning. Clearly Ann Campbell needs some type of psychiatric help and I hope she gets it. She deserves it! Her legal case will work its way through the legal system, as it should, and I have faith in our legal system in this country. Regardless of the legal outcome, the woman still needs some type of psychatric counseling and I hope she gets it!
