U.S. Marshals arrest gang member wanted in brutal slaying

RACINE -- U.S. Marshals arrest Michael Smith in Racine over the weekend. He's a dangerous gang member wanted in the brutal slaying of a grocery store security guard in Chicago.

A security camera caught Smith and an accomplice inside an Aldi's store in November. They announce a robbery and also killed the 54-year-old security guard who confronted them. A 67-year-old woman was also shot and wounded trying to get out of the store at the time of the robbery.

Chicago police caught up with Smith's partner shortly after the robbery and shooting. He later hung himself in jail. But Smith eluded them.
Then on Friday, investigators located Smith in a Racine house. They called the Milwaukee Fugitive Task Force. Police kept an eye on Smith until the U.S. Marshals arrive to arrest Smith.
Smith will be charged in Chicago with first-degree intentional homicide, armed robbery and a drug-related crime.
