Two fugitives captured in Tucumcari

Posted: Updated:

Tucumcari, NM - A manhunt that began with a deadly shooting in Illinois ended Saturday in Tucumcari.

The U.S. Marshals Service arrested 20-year-old Carlton Neely and 22-year-old James Edward Johnson outside a truck stop early Saturday morning without incident after spotting one of the men buying food inside.

Murder warrants were issued for the men this month in Illinois after the Marshals Service said the two men shot at least four people, killing one.

The pair fled to California, and investigators were able to track them to Arizona and then New Mexico.

They're awaiting extradition back to Illinois.
