Acting on a tip to Crime Stoppers, Metro Police SWAT officers arrested accused murderer and convicted felon Brandon Dewayne Smith on Monday afternoon at a home in the 3200 block of Hinkle Drive.
Smith, 20, is charged with the Nov. 20 shooting death of Jean Francine Gordon inside her 430 N. Second St. apartment. He had been a fugitive since the early morning hours of Nov. 21 when the criminal homicide arrest warrant was issued.
Police say Smith and Gordon were acquaintances. He declined to be interviewed by detectives following his arrest today.
Smith was convicted in two separate felony cocaine cases in August for which he received eight- and three-year sentences to be served as part of a community corrections program.
