Police say that Singleton got into an argument over drugs leading to Vernon Smith opening fire. Police identified Smith as the shooter and began searching the area for him, according to investigators.
Investigators say Smith turned himself in some time between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Wednesday. He is charged with attempted murder and other related offenses. He is currently in jail after failing to post $500,000 bail.
