HOWARD COUNTY - A man has been formally charged in Howard County for a murder that took place back in October.

22-year-old Sean Thomas Smith was indicted earlier this week for the shooting that took the life of 26-year-old Carlos Guerrero.

It happened at a home on Stadium.

When officers got to the scene, they found Guerrero with a gunshot wound to the chest.

He was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.

Witnesses told police that Smith shot him then took off in a truck.

Smith's vehicle was spotted a short time later in the 3600 block of West Fourth Street.

When they stopped him, officers found a rifle they believed was used in the shooting inside the truck.
