GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -- Authorities in Grand Junction say they've arrested a homicide suspect wanted in Utah.

Grand Junction police say 34-year-old James Main Jr. was arrested after crashing during a police chase on Sunday.

According to KJCT-TV, Main was not seriously injured. Court records did not indicate any charges or whether Main has an attorney.

Duchesne County Sheriff's Lt. Jeremy Curry says an alert for Main was sent out after the body of a 56-year-old man was discovered at a home during the investigation of Main's alleged abduction of two men at gunpoint Friday night.

According to the victims, Main forced them into a vehicle and took them to a home.

Authorities say the victims and another person got into an altercation and Main fired a shot before fleeing in a car.
