VIDEO: Chicago Standoff Ends, Murder Suspect in Custody

Chicago's Lake Shore Drive reopened early Monday morning, hours after police said they took a murder suspect into custody following an intense standoff that lasted more than eight hours, reports NBC Chicago.

Authorities with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia said Joseph Andrew Felton Jr., 43, was wanted for a homicide in that state. He was at Northwestern Memorial Hospital with wounds that were said to be self-inflicted.

Felton's wife, Sheray Latriest Felton, was found slain Saturday.

The ordeal that ended in the crash and standoff on Lake Shore Drive began in south suburban Harvey when authorities, provided with a vehicle description and registration, GPS location and arrest warrant information, spotted Felton's car shortly after noon and started a chase that went on for nearly 20 miles.
