Waterloo shooting victim's brothers speak out

Posted: Updated:

Thursday night, 18-year-old Daequan Campbell was shot and killed on Langley Road in Waterloo.

The investigation is on-going, according to police, but just 24 hours later, the victim's brother said the family is still grieving.

"I wake up man, and to not have my little brother...I can't call him, see him, talk with him, ride with him -- nothing, said one 21-year-old brother.

It's been a hectic 24 hours, without a lot of answers. Campbell was first shot around Thursday night.

Then, at midnight, someone pounded on the door, and shot at the victim's great aunt's house. Police maintain that they think the shootings were related.

The investigation continued Friday afternoon. Around 2 p.m., police searched several cars, and a home in Waterloo.

In one car search, one person was arrested but police said it was unrelated to the homicide.

The brothers said the killing was senseless, and whoever did it doesn't understand their family's pain

"They don't know the experience of burying their little brother, man," one brother said. "I mean, like, my other little brother had to hold his little brother and watch him die."

They said they hope the killer is caught. But in the meantime, they'll remember Daequan.

"He ain't never going to be forgotten," said Sir-Frank Nelson, Daequan's brother. "We're all going to hold him down."

Police said they do have a suspect, but can't release any information about that person until the finish interviewing witnesses. They believe the suspect and the victim knew each other, so there is little danger to the public.
