MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Former Democratic Florida Sen. Daphne Campbell used Facebook to grieve on Wednesday after her son Jason Dwayne Campbell died. He was 23.

“Carry a child for nine months with difficulties and end up having C-Section and after 23 years, you receive bad news (that) someone (shot), kills your son.”

Detectives are investigating the shooting that occurred at 8:28 a.m. Tuesday at the Montecarlo of Miami Condominiums, at 494 NW 165 St., in Miami-Dade County’s Golden Glades area.

According to a medical examiner’s report, Jason Campbell had been shot in the torso.
