CHICAGO – Charges are pending against a Georgia man who held police at bay for more than eight hours during a standoff on Chicago's iconic Lake Shore Drive.

Police say Monday that the man is in custody, but his name hasn't been released.

Sunday's standoff prompted the shutdown of the busy road, which wasn't reopened until before dawn on Monday.

The man was wanted in connection with a murder earlier this month in Hampton, Ga., about 30 miles from Atlanta.

Sunday's chase began around 12:30 p.m. in the Chicago suburb of Harvey and continued into Chicago. The chase injured four people — including a 10-year-old and a Chicago police officer. None of their injuries were life-threatening.

Police say the man was armed with knives and had self-inflicted injuries.
