A 33-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in Tullahoma after the shooting death of a toddler in June.
According to Fox 13 in Memphis, Christopher Smith, of Memphis, was taken into custody as he was walking along a road in Tullahoma, Tenn., according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
Officials said he was wanted for first-degree murder, criminal attempted first-degree murder, and related firearms offenses. Officials were about to execute a warrant for his arrest Wednesday morning when he was spotted walking near a Tullahoma home.
Officials say, Smith, 33, was involved in an argument at a Whitehaven apartment complex on West Winchester Place on the night of June 20, 2023, when he allegedly fired a shot that stuck a 3-year-old child, who later died.
The following day, officials said a warrant was issued for Smith’s arrest.
He was taken into custody Wednesday morning without incident and booked into the Coffee County Jail.
