LA. FIREFIGHTER MURDERED OVER CAMARO: COPS
Sheriff Jack Strain said: "The deputy, given no evidence to think otherwise, left the scene, felt he needed to stay close to listen to additional gunfire or any potential evidence that may came forward."
But the deputy ran into one of Smith's fellow firefighters nearby and, after talking to him, became suspicious. Cops now believe Lizana came to the
house with the intention of buying Smith's Camaro, which was up for sale.
Strain added: "Somehow that morphed into this incredibly terrible crime and left David Smith, at a young age, and full of life and a public servant -- dead."
