    HUNTINGTON Huntington Police arrested Antonio Smith Friday morning in connection with a shooting in the 200 block of Adams Avenue last month.


    Smith, 27, is charged with the attempted murder of Howard Lemaster. Capt. Rick Eplin said the shooting stemmed from an altercation between Smith and Lemaster.


    Smith was arrested at 6:55 a.m. at a residence on Wetzel Court in Huntington. The female property owner was charged with misdemeanor accessory after the fact for harboring Smith.


    Smith had seven local warrants dating back to 2005 which include charges for malicious wounding, domestic battery and grand larceny, according to police.


    Smith also has a warrant for robbery out of Columbus, Ohio. Eplin said Smith was also charged for being a fugitive from justice in Ohio.


    The U.S. Marshals Office and its Technical Operations Unit assisted in locating and arresting Smith on Friday.


    Smith was arraigned by Magistrate Dan Goheen around 10:30 a.m. Smith was given a $177,500 bond for the attempted murder charge and no bond for the fugitive from justice charge.


    Lemaster, 45, sustained several gunshot wounds to the chest during the May 6 shooting. Lemaster was transported to Cabell Huntington Hospital for treatment of his injuries following the May shooting.


    According to police, Lemaster phoned a friend following the shooting to tell him he was hurt. Lemaster was conscious when police and Cabell County EMS arrived. Eplin said Lemaster told police Smith was the shooter before being taken to the hospital.


    Lemaster was listed in fair condition a few days after the shooting.

    The guy they arrested was staying in a house on Wetzel Ct. just one-half block from where I live. He was being arrested while the wife and I were getting ready for work. People wonder why we carry in and around our homes. This is why.

    Another great eye-opener is to go for a ride-along.

    Bingo, the scumbags are everywhere even in the best neighborhoods.

    Many of these perps raped and/or molested little kids. Bear in mind that many of these perps are guilty of a more serious crime but they were allowed to plea to a lesser sexual offense. This is the OK sex offender registry for area code 73505.
