Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced
the arrest of Chayanne Ramirez – a 28-year old York man.
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
The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District

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
