Union City man faces multiple charges of reckless endangerment after shooting
Multiple counts of reckless endangerment have been charged against a Union City man accused of shooting at an occupied home Sunday.
Kinvotie V. Campbell, 29, of 920 Nevel St., Union City, was arrested at 1:58 p.m. Sunday on four counts of reckless endangerment, according to a Union City Police Department report.
The charges stem from an incident that allegedly occurred a short time earlier at Desmond Coble’s residence on South Ury Street.
According to the police report, Coble and his wife, Leslie, indicated that between 11:15 a.m. and about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, a black man by the name of “Voti” in a black Pontiac G-6 had stopped Mrs. Coble in the street while she was driving on East Bransford Street and allegedly told her that he was going to shoot her husband, Desmond.
Afterward, according to Coble, Campbell came to his house in the black Pontiac and got out, knocked on the door and was yelling for him to come outside. Coble said he did not go out and he told police he saw Campbell get back in the car, pull out of the driveway, hold a gun out the window and shoot at the house three times. Coble told police he was at the window in a room next to the kitchen, looking out, when this occurred, according to the report.
Bullets penetrated the kitchen’s north wall, then the stove in the kitchen, and one round went into the wall behind the stove, police reported.
There were reported to be three children inside the house with Coble at the time of the incident.
The black Pontiac was located by police at 116 West Bransford St. in Union City and the hood of the vehicle was still warm from its having been driven. Campbell was located at the residence he shares with a woman at 920 Nevel St., according to police.
Campbell was taken into custody and charged with four counts of felony reckless endangerment after the victim identified the vehicle found on West Bransford Street and statements were taken at the police station.
