Larry McBee, 18.

Larry Ray McBee Jr., 18, has been charged with felony murder, especially aggravated robbery and unlawful possession of a weapon.

On Dec. 22, 23-year-old Tristan M. Smith was shot and killed behind the Rural King in Halls.

McBee was captured after an overnight search of the area. On Dec. 23, he was found at a residence on McDonald Road and then taken into custody.
