A Morehouse College football player has been arrested in connection with a shooting at an off-campus party in northwest Atlanta that injured a Clark Atlanta University student.
Just before 2 a.m. Sunday, Morehouse defensive back Michael Corey Campbell allegedly shot Sean Michael Rockhead in the left hand after an argument in the 200 block of Whitaker Circle.
Rockhead told officers he was talking to a friend when “a black male walked up on him and started to feel on his pockets,” according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. When he resisted, Rockhead said he was shot.
The friend outside with Rockhead gave police a different story.
He said he and Rockhead “came outside to buy some marijuana from a gentleman with the nickname ‘Mike,’” according to the police report. “The buy somehow transformed into a verbal argument.”
