Smith is wanted in Kanawha County, West Virginia, in the May killing of Tanisha Hariston, 29, of Charleston. She appeared to have been shot, according to media reports.
A detective with the Kanawha County Bureau of Investigations and a Dunbar police detective came to Cincinnati Thursday to interview Smith, according to WSAZ-TV.
Smith robbed a U.S. Bank on Springfield Pike at gunpoint Wednesday, according to police, and threatened to kill the bank tellers, according to 911 calls.
"He was going to shoot us," a frightened teller told 911. "Right in our faces. ... I'm shaking so bad."
As Smith fled, he fired twice at police and shot a bystander in the head at the Cruise Inn in Forest Park, according to Forest Park Police Chief Bill Arns. The bystander, 47-year-old Scott Ramsey, was alert and able to speak to first responders as they transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Arns said. A later news release described his condition as "stable but critical."
Smith is charged here with attempted murder and aggravated burglary.
