U.S. Marshals, ATF, Crime Stoppers Offer Rewards Totaling $17,000 for
Pennsylvania Man Wanted in Barber’s Shooting Death

Harrisburg, PA – The U.S. Marshals Service is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the capture of a man wanted by the Carlisle Police Department and the Middle District of Pennsylvania for assault, homicide and parole violation charges.

The total reward being offered now stands at $17,000 for information leading to the arrest of Michael Anthony Baltimore, 39, whom the Marshals have labeled a Major Case.

Baltimore is alleged to have shot to death Kendell Jerome Cook and injured another man at the GQ Barbershop on North Hanover Street in Carlisle on May 22, 2021. Cook was the shop’s owner.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has also offered a reward of up to $10,000, and Cumberland County Crime Stoppers has offered $2,000.

Baltimore, who is also a barber and had worked for Cook until 2019, was featured in several episodes of the TLC reality series “90 Day Fiancé.”

Baltimore has an extensive criminal history and is known to be violent. He should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Anyone with information on Baltimore’s location is urged to contact law enforcement. You can call the Carlisle Police Department at (717) 243-5252. Anonymous tips may also be submitted via the U.S. Marshals Tip App, and tips may also be sent to Cumberland County Crime Stoppers at contact@cumberlandcrimestoppers.net or 1 (855) 628-8477.

The USMS Major Case Fugitive Program prioritizes the investigation and apprehension of high-profile offenders who are considered to be some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives. These offenders tend to be career criminals with histories of violence or whose instant offense(s) pose a significant threat to public safety.

The U.S. Marshals-led Middle Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force combines the efforts of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to locate and arrest the district’s most dangerous fugitives.
