U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests York Shooting Fugitive in the Bronx

Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Chayanne Ramirez – a 28-year old York man.

On April 15, 2018, the York City Police Department investigated the fatal shooting of a man near the intersection of East South and South Duke Streets. On April 25, 2018 - as a result of that investigation - the city police obtained an arrest warrant charging Ramirez with Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault, Possession of Firearm Prohibited; Firearms not to be Carried without License, and lesser included offenses.

Attempts to find Ramirez in and around York were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him. Deputy Marshals and their task force partners pursued leads that led them to New York City. And this afternoon, members of the USMS New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Ramirez in the 200 block of East 143rd Street in the Bronx. He was turned over to the New York Police Department to await extradition to Pennsylvania.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service and its task force partners recognize the importance of cooperation between federal, state and local police agencies – especially when searching for fugitives wanted for violent crimes. It is my sincere hope that the arrest of this fugitive brings some sense of relief to the community.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state, county and local police agencies; including the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Spring Garden Township Police Department, the Swatara Township Police Department, the York City Police Department, the York County District Attorney’s Office and the York County Sheriff’s Office – all of whom participated in this investigation.
