Chicago-area man on FBI most-wanted list arrested in Mexico

CHICAGO — Authorities say a Chicago-area man who was on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list and is wanted in the 2009 killing of a 15-year-old boy has been arrested in Mexico.

The FBI office in Chicago says Mexican federal immigration officers arrested 29-year-old Luis Macedo on Saturday without incident. 

Macedo has been on the most-wanted list since May 2016. He’s currently in FBI custody and will be turned over to local authorities when he arrives in Chicago.

Macedo was wanted in the death of Alex Arellano, who was beaten, shot and set on fire by alleged members of the Latin Kings street gang.
