Police say the driver was delivering food at South Spring and Taft about 10:15 p.m. Nov. 30, when Smith and 17-year-old Lavon Courtney pulled a gun on him.

They say Courtney hit the man in the head with a gun, and then, as the driver ran back to his car, shot at him. The driver returned fire, killing Courtney. Smith ran away.

He is now being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond.

In another case, a 26-year-old has been charged with the Nov. 25 killing of 34-year-old Raymond Neal during a fight on Pelham Avenue in Baden.
