Attempted Homicide Suspect in Mechanicsburg
 
York, PA - United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced today that the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Lajiesreh Camara, 22, in Mechanicsburg, PA.

It is alleged that on February 27, 2016, Camara shot his victim five times and the victim survived the shooting incident. On April 7, 2016, Deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers from the Middle District of Pennsylvania and the New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force arrested Camara in the 100 block of South Allen Street in Mechanicsburg without incident. Camara was turned over to local authorities pending further court proceedings and his extradition to New York.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force places a high priority on fugitive cases in which there is the use or threat of violence against innocent victims. Our community will not be a safe haven for those charged with such violent crimes.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the York County Sheriff’s Office, York County District Attorney Office, York City Police Department, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, Harrisburg Bureau of Police, Mechanicsburg Police Department and the New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force.
