Authorities this morning captured a Spring Garden man wanted for killing a teenage friend last weekend.

Sergio Santiago, 22, of Wallace Street near 16th, had been on the run since Sunday, when he allegedly shot  Antonio Flores, 17, of Mount Vernon Street near 17th, in the head in a home on Santiago's block. At 8 a.m. this morning, officers found him at the Neshaminy Inn, just past the city border on Route 1 in Bensalem, and took him into custody without incident.

If the Neshaminy Inn sounds familiar, maybe that's because of this. Or this. Or this. Or this. I could go on, but I don't have the time.

Reporter Vinny Vella talked with Flores' family yesterday and told their heartbreaking story today.

Santiago was a repeat offender who was already on probation after getting convicted in a June 2012 armed assault, court records show.
