A motorist accused of shooting at other vehicles in the southwest metro and seriously wounding a Metro Mobility passenger has been charged with several felony counts.
One of the numerous incidents allegedly committed by Luke M. Campbell, 28, of Chaska, is the shooting of a Metro Mobility client while he was a passenger on Hwy. 169 a few months ago.
Campbell was charged Monday in Scott County District Court with first- and second-degree assault, drive-by shooting and illegal weapons possession. He appeared in court Wednesday and remains jailed ahead of a bail hearing Wednesday.
In the shooting of the Metro Mobility passenger, a bullet pierced the moving vehicle early in the afternoon of March 7 as it headed south on Stagecoach Road near where it passes under Hwy. 169, police said. The charges say Campbell fired that shot from his vehicle.
Matthew D. Munz, 46, of Savage, was hit in his chest and survived.
Campbell was charged in June with shooting at a car while riding his motorcycle in Prior Lake. Police tracked him to Mystic Lake Casino and arrested him after a brief foot chase. The car he shot at took a bullet to a side door and punctured a tire, a criminal complaint read.
Police in Shakopee said Campbell has a history of firing his gun while riding his motorcycle and driving his car, and has been spotted doing so from a Hwy. 169 overpass near Hwy. 13.
A witness told police that Campbell likes to shoot his gun in high-traffic areas because it “relieves stress.”
Twice since his arrest in June, Campbell allegedly damaged property in the jail and has been charged with those offenses.
Campbell’s criminal history in Minnesota includes convictions for drug possession and first-degree robbery.
