Attack on NW Side barbershop employees sends shockwaves through community

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, a witness told officers that a man matching Campbell’s description walked into the Diesel Barbershop Bandera Oaks on Bandera Road near Loop 1604 at first trying to make an appointment. That’s when, police say, Campbell returned a few seconds later, with a backpack, gun and knife.

Police said Campbell choked 20-year-old Evan O’Regan, an employee, in an unprovoked attack until O’Regan was unconscious and then stabbed repeatedly.

Investigators say he also stabbed a female employee, but she was able to run to a nearby business for help. She is being treated a local hospital, the affidavit said.

A third employee, the witness, was also able to escape uninjured, police said.

The affidavit said police were able to identify Campbell using computer records and surveillance video, taking him into custody Wednesday evening.

Campbell is charged with murder.
