Man arrested In connection with fatal Northside shooting

Family members of shooting victim Antwan Morris say he had a generous heart.

Cincinnati police have made an arrest following a fatal shooting earlier this month in Northside. 

Arthur Smith, 34, of Millvale, was arrested Wednesday in connection with the murder of 34-year-old Antwan Morris, according to a news release. 

Smith is also facing charges of felonious assault and having weapons while under disability, according to documents filed in Hamilton County Municipal Court. 

A Cincinnati police officer said in an affidavit on Nov. 7 that Smith shot Morris in the stomach earlier that day after a verbal altercation. Smith was not supposed to have the .380 semi-automatic handgun he used to shoot Morris, due to having been convicted in the past of felonious assault, the officer said. 

Officers responded around 12:40 p.m. to a report of a person shot at the 1700 block of Casey Drive, officials said. Morris was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He died of his injuries three days later.
