U-S Marshals and Stevens Point police were working together Wednesday afternoon to take a 22-year-old murder suspect from Chicago into custody. 

When authorities carrying a warrant knocked on the door, they say Jerome Buchanan jumped out a window and ran through a parking lot on the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point campus.  He was quickly chased down and is being held in the Portage County Jail, awaiting extradition.  Students were advised about the activity by an alert.
