CHICAGO (AP) -- A standoff on Chicago's Lake Shore Drive that lasted more than eight hours has ended with police taking a Georgia man into custody.

Authorities have said the man is wanted in connection with a murder earlier this month in Hampton, Ga., which is roughly 30 miles from Atlanta.

Police say a chase involving the man began Sunday in the Chicago suburb of Harvey, Ill. They say it was the result of an investigation involving Harvey police and police in Henry County, Ga.

The chase ended in a crash on Lake Shore Drive and the subsequent standoff.

The incident caused major traffic problems on the heavily traveled roadway along Lake Michigan.
