A man wanted in connection with a slaying in Chicago has been arrested following the shooting of an Illinois state trooper in Springfield.
The trooper was shot in the leg about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday following an "interaction" with the 37-year-old Chicago man, state police said.
The man ran from the shooting scene, but was captured about 2 a.m. Wednesday during a search by officers from multiple law enforcement agencies. The trooper was taken to a hospital, and his condition was not released.
State police and Chicago police did not provide details of the Chicago slaying, but relatives of Adrianna Lopez told WLS-TV and the Chicago Sun-Times that the suspect in the woman's fatal shooting Sunday night had been arrested.
Lopez, 37, was shot outside her home in Chicago's Garfield Ridge neighborhood. Chicago police had said she was shot at least 10 times after being approached by a man she knew who was in a dark-colored SUV.
Lopez taught special education at an elementary school in the neighborhood of Brighton Park.
Springfield is about 210 miles southwest of Chicago.
