Pair arrested in Ferguson, Missouri, for 2016 Algiers murder

Ronnie Smith and Ageeta Locure

NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD’s Violent Offenders Squad joined U.S. Marshals in Ferguson, Missouri, to capture two people wanted for a murder in Algiers last year.

Twenty-two-year-old Ronnie Smith and 40-year-old Ageeta Locure were captured in Ferguson after the NOPD says they gunned down a man in the 3300 block of General Meyer Avenue on October 8, 2016.

The victim in that incident had been shot multiple times and later died at a hospital.

U.S. Marshals agents found a 9mm handgun with an extended magazine at the location where they arrested Smith and Locure, according to the NOPD.
