Additional charges for suspect in Harrison County homicide

One of the suspects in the shooting death of 16-year-old Lazairus Smith in Harrison County earlier this month is now facing additional charges for a separate incident that happened a week earlier.

According to our media partner the Sun Herald, 21-year-old Johnte Pouerie of Colorado is also accused of shooting into a car with three people inside, one of which was his own baby daughter.

Police found five bullet holes in the car, but no one was injured. That incident took place December 10th at Riverchase Park Apartments.

Pouerie appeared in Harrison County Justice Court yesterday, where he was charged with two counts of aggravated domestic violence and one count of aggravated assault.

He was already facing a felony homicide charge for the shooting death of Lazairus Smith.

A 14-year-old from Gulfport was also charged in Smith’s death.
