LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Three fugitives wanted for murder out of Jacksonville, Fla., were captured Wednesday night in Lexington County.

FBI spokesman Don Woods said the agency got involved when Keith Jackson, Lewis Braclet and Brandon Roundtree took flight from Florida after the murder. The suspects fled from their vehicle and caused a foot chase and search through Lexington County in the Gaston and Swansea areas near W.E. Jeffcoat and Sharon Church roads. All three were captured at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

A fourth man wanted in connection with the case was arrested in Florida.

At this time, Woods said the men are only charged with the Florida murder.

Lexington County Sheriff's Department and the S.C. Law Enforcement Division assisted with K-9s and helicopters to locate the fugitives.
