Man Wanted In Chicago Shooting Death Arrested In Indy

Last updated on Friday, June 5, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The subject of a nationwide manhunt is under arrest in Indianapolis.

The FBI Wednesday located a man suspected of gunning down a Chicago resident in September 2008 outside a fast food restaurant on the city's south side.

Special agent Wendy Osborne says 28-year-old Akee Walton was taken into custody without incident.

Authorities found him there after investigating a tip that he was staying with a relative.

Walton was charged earlier by Cook County authorities with first degree murder for the shooting death of Isaiah Walker.

He's now awaiting extradition to Chicago.
