A suspect wanted on several charges including attempted murder out of Selma is under arrested after being captured in Chicago.

The suspect, Darryl DeWayne Johnson, was extradited back to Alabama over the weekend.

Members of the Selma Police Department's Vice/Narcotics Unit were in contact with the Chicago Police Department after Johnson was arrested on August 23. The suspect was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshal's Service.
