Can anyone identify this plant?

This plant has grown in our front bed. We had a squirrel planted cherry tomatoes plant that was there last summer but this plant looks completely different.

Anne Arundel County Maryland plant identification invasive tree of heaven

If we had to guess, we'd think this is an invasive called Tree of Heaven. The sure way to know is to pick a leaf and crush it, then smell it. If it smells something like rotten peanut butter, that's what it is.
