Williamsport, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Michael Spencer, a 32-year old man, on charges of criminal attempt – homicide and other related offenses.
Earlier today, Deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers arrested Spencer without incident near Baring and N. Wiota Streets in Philadelphia. Spencer was turned over to local authorities pending his extradition back to Lycoming County.
Spencer was charged by the Williamsport Police Department for a shooting incident that took place on April 18, 2015 outside of Club Imbibe in the city. It is alleged that Spencer shot into a crowd of people shortly after getting into a verbal argument with other club patrons. Multiple individuals were struck by gunfire. Several sustained serious life-threatening wounds.
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The coordination and cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case led directly to a dangerous fugitive being taken off the streets. It is our top priority to arrest violent crime fugitives, especially those who have no regard for human life.”
The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the Williamsport Police Department, Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office and United States Marshals Service personnel from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
