Chicago Police have nabbed a man wanted by the U.S. Marshall's for a 2007 gang-related shooting that left four bystanders injured on the Las Vegas Strip.

The elusive Robert Steven Jackson had been featured numerous times on the television program "America's Most Wanted," most recently in March and was listed on the U.S. Marshall's Top 15 wanted list, a release from police News Affairs said.

Jackson was arrested Friday morning when Fugitive Task Force officers saw him leaving a home in the 6900 block of South Dorchester Avenue, which is listed as his home address. He got into a vehicle and a short distance later, Fugitive Task Force officers, as well as Grand Crossing District Patrol personnel, stopped the vehicle and took him into custody without incident, the release said.

Jackson, 25, was wanted on two warrants when Chicago Police placed him into custody. One was issued by the U.S. Marshall's Service for flight to avoid prosecution.

A separate warrant was issued by the Las Vegas Metro Police Dept.,

where Jackson is wanted for attempted murder with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon and felon in possession of a firearm, the release said.

Jackson's charges stem from an incident that happened in August 2007 in which he allegedly fired several shots during a gang altercation on the Las Vegas Strip. Four bystanders were hit in the incident. Jackson will remain in custody at the Cook County Dept. of Corrections pending extradition.
