Harrisburg, PA - Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Marquez Jabar McCowin, a 28-year old man from York, PA.

On August 6, 2016, the York City Police Department investigated a shooting in which several shots were fired into a home in the 200 block of South Penn Street, striking an 11-year old child in the shoulder. Detectives identified the shooter as McCowin and obtained an arrest warrant charging him with Aggravated Assault with a firearm, Discharge of a Firearm into an Occupied Structure and lesser included offenses.

This morning, deputy marshals and members of the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested McCowin without incident in the first block of North Seward Street, York. He was turned over to the York County Sheriff’s Office Central Booking Unit for processing and judicial proceedings.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “Our society must not tolerate such violence and should be committed to ensuring that dangerous fugitives are brought before the court. We are committed to ensuring this and it is my sincere hope this arrest brings some sense of calm to citizens.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 21 state, county and local police agencies; including the York City Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation of Parole, the York County District Attorney’s Office and the York County Sheriff’s Office – all of whom participated in this arrest.
