Fatal shooting occurred in early May 2015

Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of John McDonald, a 22-year old man, on charges of criminal homicide and other related offenses.

Earlier today, Deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers assigned to the USMS Capitol Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested John McDonald in the 5800 block of Royal Oak Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland. The fugitive was turned over to local authorities pending his extradition back to Dauphin County.

McDonald was charged with criminal homicide by the Harrisburg Bureau of Police for a shooting that occurred on May 9, 2015. It is alleged that McDonald shot and killed his victim in the vicinity of the 500 block of South 19th Street.

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 United States Marshals Service worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, Dauphin County Adult Probation, Dauphin County Work Release, York County Sheriff’s Office, the York City Police Department and members of the USMS Capitol Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.
