Metro Police are searching for a suspect accused in a fatal shooting last month on the city's east side.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 24-year-old Octavio Gonzalez who faces murder and robbery charges for the death of 31-year-old Dexter Smith.  Smith was found dead inside his home in the 1800 block of Heather Court, near 21st Street and Mitthoeffer Road, on July 12.

Police do not think this was a random act.  Detectives believe Gonzalez may have fled to Atlanta but are not certain of his whereabouts.  

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.  Callers can remain anonymous.
