CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Java Bowling III has died after being shot in the chest last week.

According to police Bowling was killed for simply doing what most people are told that real friends would do, which is trying to stop a friend from driving drunk.

Bowling got into in a fight with his friend, Scott A. Campbell Sr. on August 4, when he tried to take away Campbell's car keys, to prevent him from getting behind the wheel intoxicated.

Investigators say Campbell shot Bowling in the chest on Roanoke Ave. in Cleveland then fled to Middleburg Heights where he was arrested and charged with felonious assault.

Java was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. He died Friday.

Homicide Detectives will consult with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office for additional charges against Campbell.
