Cardell Hayes, the 28-year-old suspect, was booked for second-degree murder on Sunday. Smith, 34, was shot a number of times and his wife Racquel was shot twice in the leg, according to police. Smith was pronounced dead on the scene and his wife was taken to the hospital. The 30-year-old driver, and the alleged shooter, is in custody and being interviewed.
