TOBYHANNA, Pa. (AP) -- A teenager accused of shooting four people during a three-month crime spree in South Carolina, killing one, has been captured in northeastern Pennsylvania.

U.S. Marshal Martin Pane says 17-year-old Dustin Williamson was arrested without incident Tuesday morning in Tobyhanna, in the Pocono Mountains.

Authorities in Barnwell County, S.C., say Williamson shot and wounded two people in March, shot and killed another victim in May, and shot and wounded a fourth person in June. He was wanted on charges of murder, attempted murder, armed robbery and weapons offenses.

Williamson awaits extradition to South Carolina. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
