— An 18-year-old Fayetteville man, wanted on charges that he shot and killed one man and assaulted another during a robbery, turned himself in to police Monday, authorities announced.

Christopher Andrew Alexander was being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center with no bond.

Investigators said they believe Alexander killed Jason Lee Smith at his 6111 Regis Court home. Emanual Gantlin, 26, who also lives at the house, was assaulted and injured by Alexander, police said.

Alexander was charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, attempt to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

He was put on probation for a 2007 conviction for communicating threats, according to state Department of Correction records.

    Probably the first thing he ever did that resembles the actions of a man.
