U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Harrisburg Homicide Fugitive in North Carolina

Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Shawn Walker, a 49-year old man, on charges of criminal homicide and other related offenses.

Earlier today, Deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers from the U.S. Marshals Service’s (USMS) Eastern District of North Carolina arrested Walker at a location in Creedmoor, NC. Walker was turned over to local authorities pending his extradition to Dauphin County.

Walker was charged by the Harrisburg Bureau of Police with criminal homicide, carrying a firearm without a license and possession of firearm. It is alleged that, in the early morning hours of July 12, 2015, Walker shot his victim, causing his death, in the 400 block of Crescent 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 as well as U.S. Marshals from the Eastern District of North Carolina.
