Robert Clark, Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal

Eastern District of Pennsylvania
(215) 783-4548

Philadelphia, PA - Members of the U.S. Marshals Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crimes Fugitive Task Force and members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force today arrested the final suspect wanted in the March 6 shooting incident at a Septa bus stop in which eight juveniles were injured.

Asir Boone, 17, was wanted for attempted murder, firearms violations, and related charges in relation to the shooting incident in the 7300 block of Rising Sun Avenue. A warrant for Boone was issued March 12 and immediately delegated to the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Philadelphia. 

At approximately 12:15 p.m. today, investigators from U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) fugitive task forces in Philadelphia and Alexandria, Virginia, proceeded to an apartment in the 700 block of Seaton Avenue in Alexandria where USMS investigators believed Boone was hiding with a woman who had ties to Philadelphia. Upon entering the apartment, investigators located Boone, who complied with USMS commands and was taken into custody without incident. He was then transported to the Alexandria Police Department for processing.  

“I hope this final arrest brings some comfort to the student victims of this senseless crime. No child should have to fear for their safety while receiving an education and I hope these arrests can subside that fear,” said Robert Clark, Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal for the Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crime Fugitive Task Force.

The Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crimes Fugitive Task Force is a team of law enforcement officers led by U.S. Marshals in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. The task force’s objective is to seek out and arrest violent crime fugitives. Membership agencies include the Philadelphia Police Department, Pennsylvania State Parole Officers, Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Attorney General Agents, Immigration Customs Enforcement, Chester Police Department, Bucks County Sheriffs, and Delaware County Sheriffs.
