Garry "Little Man" Smith declared his innocence by apparently announcing his guilt to another crime.

The 25-year-old suspected in a deadly shooting in Clairton, Pa., told the press he wasn't at the scene of the crime because he was at home smoking marijuana.

"I don't know what happened," Gary "Little Man" Smith told WTAE reporter Ari Hait outside Allegheny County Jail. "I was at the crib chilling, smoking some weed."

Smith and his alleged accomplice, Eugene McMiller, 19, had been on the run since the death of Justin Charles, 27, on Oct. 14, according to authorities.

They were arrested in a home in Clairton on Oct. 19 and face charges of criminal homicide, robbery, recklessly endangerment and conspiracy, KDKA reports.

But Smith insists he has been charged with a crime he "didn't commit."

"Hope they find out who did that (expletive)," he reportedly told WTAE. "Because that (expletive) ain't cool. They got me all jammed up in this (expletive). I ain't do that (expletive), man."
