Pursuit, arrest in Starke Co. homicide case

An arrest in a Starke County homicide.


James Campbell, 52, was arrested for the incident that happened on Thanksgiving at the birthday party of Randall Bailey, 75.


Law enforcement was called to a Starke County home in the 2000 block of County Road 550 East Thursday afternoon.  By that time, Campbell had already left the scene and was captured after a pursuit with Starke and Knox County authorities.  Campbell was taken into custody with the use of a Taser and aid from a K9 unit after he tried to escape on foot.


No cause for the shooting has been released at this point beyond an argument taking place between Campbell and Bailey.


Campbell was initially held without bond and scheduled for a court appearance this week.
