    Authorities say a teen sought in the slaying of a Pennsylvania college student in was taken into custody yesterday in New York state.

    The (Scranton) Times-Tribune reports the U.S. Marshals Service says a task force tracked 18-year-old Ryan Harding to the Syracuse, N.Y. area. Harding is accused of pulling the trigger in a deadly shooting after a party.

    U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said Harding fled when authorities approached but was captured Tuesday night after a two-hour foot chase and search through an apartment complex.

    Harding was being sought in the shooting death of 22-year-old Lackawanna College student Rahsan Crowder after a May 5 argument near the school's campus.

    He is charged in Lackawanna County with first- and third-degree murder, aggravated assault and a weapons charge.

    Another man, Marlon Clotter, was arrested earlier and charged in the case.

    Two others, Kristopher Adkins, 18, and Devante Graham, 18, both face charges that they helped Harding flee the state.
