SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. -

A man wanted in Wisconsin was captured in Sumner County on Interstate 65 South near Millersville, Thursday afternoon.

According to the 18th Judicial District Drug Task Force, Ryan King, 45, had active warrants for a murder in Racine, Wisconsin Wednesday.

Racine is located near Milwaukee.

King was initially pulled over by authorities on I-65 for a traffic violation around 2:30 p.m.

Authorities reported the 45-year-old driver had an injury to his hand and appeared to have blood on his clothing.

As investigators were completing their investigation, a "be on the lookout" call was broadcast on police radio.

The broadcast included a description of the car officers stopped King in and a description of King himself.  

According to Racine Police, around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday they were called to the 600 block of 6th Street on a call of a person down.

When they arrived to the scene they found Lucinda White, 44, with multiple gunshot wounds.

Lula Brown lives near the scene of the shooting.

"I heard the first shot and thought it was just somebody closing the hood on their car or whatever," she said. "When I went to go the bathroom again I heard another shot and I'm like I said something [isn't] right."

White was taken airlifted to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee.

Calls to the hospital and to Racine Police officials for her condition were not returned.

However on White's Facebook page Thursday evening a number of family members and friends left comments that included:

"Lucinda White…rest in piece (sic). You will be missed!!!"

"Lov (sic) u cuz God got u lov (sic) u are my sunshine and well (sic) be miss (sic) to the family be strong God lov (sic) u all."

"RIP [you] will be missed."

King was taken into custody without incident. Investigators also found a firearm in his car.

He was booked into the Sumner County jail charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and being a fugitive from justice.

He is also being held in the jail as officials Wisconsin plan an extradition request.  

Racine police have no released a motive for the shooting.

The 18th Judicial District Drug Task Force is a task force comprised of several different agencies in Sumner County.

The agencies include Sumner County District Attorneys Office, Sumner County Sheriff's Office, Hendersonville Police Department, Portland Police Department and Gallatin Police Department.

The task force often works with other county, state and federal agencies in order to make arrests and take drugs off the streets.

That includes patrolling the interstate for suspicious activity with its highway interdiction team.
