    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A Florida man accused in the March 4 killing of a man in Daytona Beach was taken into custody Tuesday in Georgia, police said.

    Michael Henderson was wanted in connection with the killing of Allen Johnson after an argument on Eldorado Street near Bethune-Cookman University, investigators said.

    After being shot, Johnson was able to drive his car another two blocks before he crashed into a pole and died, the Daytona Beach Police Department said.

    When U.S. marshals located Henderson at a residence in Douglasville, Georgia, the man allegedly tried to resist arrest and barricaded himself inside, investigators said.

    “He’s a coward,” Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri said. “He ran and now he’s in custody. The community is safe and that’s the most important thing.”

    Detectives did not give any details about the home in which Henderson was located or what connection he may have had with it.

    Police were working to bring Henderson back to Volusia County to face charges in connection with Johnson’s death.
