|U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Captures Four During Early Morning Roundup|
PA – United States Marshal Steve Frank announces the arrests of four
wanted felons earlier this morning by members of the United State Marshals’
Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force (WPAFTF). Most significant was the
capture of fugitive Isaac Young. Young, age 27, was charged by the Allegheny
County Police on July 1, 2013 with Criminal Attempt-Homicide, Carrying a
Firearm without a License, Aggravated Assault and Recklessly Endangering
another Person. These charges stem from a June 25, 2013 incident that
occurred in the 3500 block of Miles Avenue in Clairton, PA. Young is alleged
to have shot the male victim multiple times following an altercation. Young
was also wanted by the Clairton Police Department pursuant to a separate
arrest warrant charging him with Possession with Intent to Deliver a
Controlled Substance. This investigation was referred to the U.S. Marshals’
WPAFTF on January 14, 2014 and prioritized due to the nature of the offense.
Young was apprehended at approximately 6:15 am this morning without incident
at a residence in the 700 block of Junilla Street in the Hill District
section of Pittsburgh. Following his capture by the WPAFTF, Young was turned
over to the custody of Allegheny County Homicide Detectives.
