BALTIMORE COUNTY — A suspect has been charged in the killing of a 20-year-old man on Stillmeadow Road.

20-year-old Sahmir Pasha Tahlib Smokes is charged with first degree murder and held on no bail status pending a bail review hearing.

The investigation determined that Smokes and the victim, identified as 20-year-old Nygel Allen-Lee Simmons, knew each other and had an ongoing dispute.

Officers quickly located the suspect vehicle and stopped it at South and Baltimore Street in Baltimore City.

Smokes, the passenger, was arrested along with the driver, who was later released without charge after detectives determined the driver had no knowledge of the crime.
