Arrest Made in Ross Street Murder


By Morgan Hightower

On Friday, November 19, 2010, at approximately 2:31 p. m. patrol units responded to the report of a subject shot in the 400 block of Ross Street. Upon arrival they did locate the victim, David Hall, suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. This victim was transported to Jackson’s emergency room with life threatening injuries.

On November 19, 2010 at 9:01 p.m. the victim died as a result of his injuries.

The exact motive for this incident is still under investigation, however, the victim and suspect do appear to know each other and there may have been an ongoing dispute.

The suspect in this case is a black male with dreads and is described as approximately 6’00” tall and has a medium build. At this time the suspect is not in custody but detectives do have strong leads that are being followed up on.


On Thursday, December 3, 2010, members of the Montgomery Police Department and the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force apprehended Milas J. Smith for the murder of David Hall.

Smith was charged with Murder and transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility under a $75,000.00 bond.

The offense stemmed for the two subjects being involved in an on-going dispute over an undisclosed issue.

This was the City of Montgomery’s 23rd Murder for 2010.
