U.S. Marshals Apprehend York Murder Suspect

Harrisburg, PA – United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced today that the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) arrested Rashaun Bush in Harrisburg.

Bush was being sought by the York City Police Department for the murder of Kanyleron McDavid. It is alleged that, on June 15, 2012, McDavid went to the home of a former girlfriend in the 400 block of Walnut Street. McDavid found Bush there with his former girlfriend, and the two men got into a fight. As the woman took her children to another floor, she heard gunshots and saw Bush flee the home. Police were called to the scene, where they found McDavid suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An arrest warrant was issued, charging Bush with criminal homicide. The York City Police Department requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to locate and arrest Bush. USMS personnel developed information that Bush was staying with a woman at an apartment on Thornwood Road in Harrisburg.

During the morning hours of June 19, U.S. Marshals and task force officers located and arrested Bush inside the Thornwood Road apartment. Bush attempted to flee, but was arrested without incident. A .40 caliber handgun was recovered inside the apartment.

Bush, a 20-year old native of York, was taken to York Central Booking to be arraigned.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “It’s Law Enforcement’s top priority to arrest violent offenders, especially those who have no regard for human life. It is my hope that the York area community and the family of the victim may rest a little easier because of the swift apprehension of this fugitive.”

U.S. Marshals were assisted by several agencies that participate in the district’s Fugitive Task Force. This included officers from the York City Police Department, Harrisburg Bureau of Police, York County Sheriff’s Department, Pennsylvania State Police and Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole.
