A Wichita gang member was indicted Tuesday on a federal firearms charge that resulted from an investigation into a shooting incident, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Jermall Campbell, 32, Wichita, Kan., is charged with one count of unlawful possession of ammunition following a felony conviction. The crime is alleged to have occurred June 24, 2014, in Wichita, Kan.

Campbell initially was charged in a criminal complaint filed June 27 in U.S. District Court in Wichita. It is alleged Wichita police were called June 14 to a report of a shooting at 7007 E. Harry in Wichita. They found shell casings in the parking lot. Witnesses reported seeing Campbell, who is a documented member of the Neighborhood Crips street gang, carrying a gun when he tried to enter the club before the shooting and wrestled with a security guard. Police served a search warrant at Campbell's residence.

Campbell was convicted in a federal racketeering case filed in 2007 and sentenced to 64 months. Federal law prohibits a convicted felon from possessing a firearm.
