On April 28 at approximately 3:22 pm, West Precinct officers responded to a call of a person shot near the 1700 block of Avenue I in Ensley.

“When officers arrived on the scene, they observed the victim lying on the roadway unresponsive, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound,” said BPD Officer LaQuitta Wade. “Officers also observed a citizen attempting to render aid to the victim.”

Birmingham Fire and Rescue Services arrived on the scene and pronounced Hinson, 50, dead.

“The preliminary investigation suggests the victim and others were hanging out in the area when a verbal altercation occurred,” Wade said last week. “An unknown suspect fired shots, wounding the victim, and left the scene.”

Last Wednesday, an arrest warrant was issued charging Cedric Jermaine Campbell, 42, with murder.

Campbell was arrested on May 2 by the Birmingham Crime Reduction Team at Bama Gas located at 2390 Center Point Parkway.

He is now in custody at the Jefferson County Jail where he is being held without bond.
