Police seek vehicle in shooting investigation

Police are looking for a green sport utility vehicle that was seen near Darryle Antonio Smith just before Smith was killed early Tuesday.

St. Petersburg detective Ron Noodwang said Smith, 21, had been talking with someone in a vehicle before the shooting. "Shots were heard and the car fled," Noodwang said.

Smith was found about 2:45 a.m. in an alley between Third and Fourth avenues S, just west of 27th Street.

The vehicle, possibly a Toyota Rav 4, was dark green with a black lower panel. It was driven by a white woman, 18-23 years old, who had blonde hair in a ponytail.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or witness is asked to call Noodwang at 892-5545.
