Agents arrest Illinois fugitive in Wisconsin

Posted:

MIWAUKEE (AP) -- A man suspected of carjacking a vehicle in Illinois and causing a collision that killed an 11-year-old boy has been arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in Milwaukee.

Agency spokesman Ed Farrell says the 34-year-old suspect from Beach Park, Ill., was arrested Tuesday. Farrell says agents got word that he was in Milwaukee, and they spotted the stolen vehicle waiting in a restaurant's drive-through lane.

Farrell says agents boxed him in and arrested him without incident.

Authorities say the man stole a van at gunpoint Saturday in Chicago. Officers gave chase, and the man's van collided with another vehicle. Donovan Turnage, a Chicago fifth grader on his way to get a Christmas haircut, was killed.
