U.S. Marshals, Lexington County Arrest Kansas Murder Suspect

Columbia, SC – Michael Angelo Young was arrested without incident at a relative’s home on Wednesday, April 8. Young, 29, was the subject of Wyandotte County, KS warrants for First Degree Murder and Aggravated Battery. The warrants stem from a shooting incident that occurred in October 2008. He was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting extradition proceedings. The Marshals’ fugitive task force, Operation Intercept, received information on Tuesday that Young was possibly staying at a residence on Emerald Shores Circle in Chapin. Lexington County investigators and Deputy Marshals initiated an investigation and were able to locate him at the residence the following night. SLED agents and Richland County Sheriff’s deputies also aided in the apprehension.

Established in 1789, the United States Marshals Service is the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency. Last year, Marshals Service task forces like South Carolina's Operation Intercept apprehended over 109,000 felony fugitives nationwide.
