Philadelphia Shooting Suspect in Lock Haven

Williamsport, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Jeferson Lopes-Deandrade, a 20-year-old man formerly of Philadelphia.

On October 31, 2021, at about 2:30 a.m., the Philadelphia Police Department investigated a non-fatal shooting in the 7900 block of Horrocks Street. As a result of their investigation detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging Lopes-Deandrade with attempted murder, aggravated assault, and firearms violations. Attempts to find him were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him.

Today at about 10 a.m., members of the fugitive task force arrested Lopes-Deandrade without incident in the first block of North Highland Street, Lock Haven. He was turned over to Clinton County authorities for arraignment and processing.

U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said, “The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the importance of working with state and local police agencies to bring those charged with serious crimes to justice as quickly as possible. In this way the Marshals Service contributes to the overall public safety of our communities.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 22 state, county, and local police agencies throughout the district’s 33 counties.
