(Stations: Please substitute the following for V3167 slugged Gunman's Son, which moved at 10:44 a.m. Eastern time. CORRECTION: The chief spokesman for the U.S. Marshal's Service has corrected his earlier statement and now says the suspect did NOT threaten to blow up federal building in Memphis.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service says the son of a man killed when he opened fire at a Las Vegas courthouse has been captured in Tennessee after allegedly making numerous death threats.

The chief spokesman for the law enforcement agency, Jeff Carter, says that deputy marshals took Richard Earl Nelson into custody Wednesday night in western Tennessee.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Nelson because of the alleged threats and a violation of his probation in another case.

Carter said Nelson is the son of Johnny Lee Wicks, the 66-year-old ex-convict killed in a shootout in the federal building in downtown Las Vegas this month.
