The U.S. Marshals Service said Friday that 36-year-old Israel Romo Ysea was taken into custody after he came out of a home in Douglas.

Authorities say Ysea allegedly called 911 to report a bomb threat in an effort to escape capture.

They say Ysea was wanted in connection with the Oct. 15 death of Guillermo Cruz at a Douglas home.

Authorities say Cruz allegedly was challenged to a fight by Ysea and was fatally stabbed Cruz with a knife.

Cruz later died at a hospital.
