WHITE CENTER – First-degree murder charges were filed Wednesday against a man accused of shooting another man to death here.

The charge was filed Wednesday in King County Superior Court against 22-year-old Durell L. Campbell.

He was arrested last Thursday and remains in jail with bail set at $2 million pending a hearing May 22 in Superior Court.

Campbell is charged with fatally shooting 22-year-old Robert Crawford on Dec. 17 after a gang-related conversation outside the Magic Lanes Bowling Alley-Casino.

According to an affidavit filed in court, Crawford made a “sarcastic, disparaging remark” to Campbell. Moments later, investigators wrote, Campbell apparently returned and fired about seven shots from a .45-caliber pistol.

Campbell was identified partly through surveillance videotapes. If convicted, he faces a standard sentencing range of 25 to 31 years in prison.
