He was captured Sunday in Stockbridge, Georgia, according to the FBI.
“You can run but … FBI Atlanta helps out law enforcement partners with arrest of suspect in double murder,” FBI Atlanta posted on Twitter.
Both shootings took place hours apart on Dec. 5 and within about 100 feet of each other.
The first shooting took place around 3 a.m. outside Rick’s Jazz Club on Lakeview Avenue.
Smith reportedly shot Harris and William Earnest with a .40 caliber handgun, killing Harris and injuring Earnest.
Nearly eight hours later, around 10:30 a.m., Smith allegedly shot Brown in front of the Save Food Super Market on Germantown Street, according to court records.
Brown was taken to a local hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
