MAN CHARGED IN MURDER OF TEEN - A Greenbrier County teenager has died from injuries suffered in a shooting last week and now police have charged the alleged shooter with murder.

Alaisia Smith, 17, died at Charleston Area Medical Center Wednesday. She had been on life support since being shot last Friday at Dorie Miller Park where she was in a parked car with friends.

Edward Alexander Smith-Allen, 19, was originally charged with wanton endangerment with a firearm and turned himself in to police last Saturday. He was released after posting $5,000 bail. The charges were increased after Smith’s death.

Smith-Allen was arrested in Columbus, Ohio, Wednesday by U.S. Marshals following Smith’s death. He’s awaiting an extradition hearing.

An original criminal complaint said multiple witnesses described Smith-Allen’s actions as “playing,” at the time the weapon discharged.
