Orlando Smith, 21

Smith was shot to death Oct. 14 at the Whitby Court Apartments, 7504 Knight Lake Drive. Police have made no arrests in the case. Smith was found not guilty of murder in June. He was accused in the shooting of Dejontae Durham, 17, in November 2009. Another man charged with accessory to Durham's murder was shot to death in September 2010. Tracey T. Humphrey was out on bail when he was killed and never got his day in court. All of the shootings are considered gang-related by police, but investigators haven't said whether they think Smith and Humphrey were killed in retaliation for Durham's death.
