A man wanted for murder in Pennsylvania surrendered to police after a stand-off on East Fayette Street in Syracuse.
Syracuse police say Ryan Harding, 18, was wanted for a homicide that happened on May 5 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Investigators and the SWAT Team had blocked off the 2,000 block of East Fayette Street. They were working with US Marshalls to find Harding.
The Scranton Times-Tribune says the U.S. Marshals Service says a task force tracked Harding to the Syracuse area.
U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said Harding fled when authorities approached but was captured Tuesday night after a two-hour foot chase and search through an apartment complex.
Harding was being sought in the shooting death of 22-year-old Lackawanna College student Rahsan Crowder after a May 5 argument near the school's campus.
He is charged in Lackawanna County with first- and third-degree murder, aggravated assault and a weapons charge.
Another man, Marlon Clotter, was arrested earlier and charged in the case.
