    A suspect in a string of weekend carjackings, including one that ended in a crash that killed an 11-year-old boy, was arrested this morning after U.S. marshals in SUVs pinned him in at a McDonald's drive-thru in Milwaukee, authorities said.

    Rockie Douglas, 34, was waiting for food at the McDonald's on the northwest side of the city when deputy marshals pulled in front and back of him around 11:30 a.m., according to Ed Farrell, supervisory inspector of the task force. A woman in the car with him was not injured.

    "He attempted to use the female passenger as a human shield, briefly," said Douglas Bachert, supervisory deputy U.S. marshal in Milwaukee.

    Douglas was tracked down after using credit cards he had stolen earlier this month in a purse-snatching in Gurnee, authorities said........

    Douglas was spotted still driving the blue Honda Accord he had carjacked on the ramp from Interstate Highway 294 to the Reagan Memorial Tollway to escape police over the weekend, authorities said. He was taken to the Milwaukee County Jail to await extradition to Chicago, Bachert said.

    Douglas had been sought since Saturday when, driving a stolen car, he barreled into a Chevrolet Suburban and killed 11-year-old Donovan Turnage on the South Side, police said. Donovan, his brother and their father were out getting haircuts for the holiday, relatives said.

    I don't doubt he's into drugs but most of his charges have been for burglary and theft. Actually he should have been in jail at the time this happened:

    He carjacked 3 vehicles and killed the little boy before running back to Wis.
