U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Williamsport Shooting Suspect

Williamsport, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Sharonda R. Walker, a 23-year old woman, wanted for aggravated assault and other related offenses in Williamsport, PA.

On February 3, Deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers from the Middle District of Pennsylvania arrested Walker without incident in the 2400 block of Lyle Lane in Williamsport. Walker was turned over to local authorities pending judicial proceedings. This arrest comes two days after another suspect, 22-year old Rafiyq Harding, was arrested on charges stemming from the same incident.

It is alleged that on January 5, 2015, Walker and Harding were involved in an altercation where a weapon was discharged at a residence. On January 6, an arrest warrant was issued in Lycoming County by Magisterial District Judge James G. Carn, charging Walker with Conspiracy - Aggravated Assault, Conspiracy – Riot Plan/Use Firearm/Weapon, Aggravated Assault, Riot-Intent, Firearms Not To Be Carried Without a License, Discharge of a Firearm into Occupied Structure, Stalking, Possession of Weapon, Simple Assault, Reckless Endangering Another Person, and Disorderly Conduct.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The top priority of the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force is to arrest violent offenders, especially those who use guns against our citizens. This arrest takes a dangerous suspect off the streets, and provides the victim with some measure of justice.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 23 state, county and local police agencies, including the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, Williamsport Bureau of Police, Union County Sheriff’s Office and Berwick Police Department – all of whom participated in this fugitive case investigation.
