Autrey “Pluto” Smith surrendered Thursday to police at the First Precinct station house, where he was charged with second-degree murder.

Judge Anthony Paradiso denied bail for the 21-year-old Roosevelt man during his initial court appearance Friday.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged that Smith shot Lyreek Crawley during a house party at the victim’s Colonial Avenue home in the early morning hours of Sunday, Dec. 28.

Officers responding to a Shot Spotter alert and 911 call reporting shots fired had found the victim in the rear yard with a gunshot wound in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Smith is due back in court Tuesday.
