Philadelphia, PA - Members of the U.S. Marshals Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crimes Fugitive Task Force and members of the Philadelphia Police Shooting Investigative Unit arrested on March 12th another man wanted in the March 6 shooting incident at a Septa bus stop in which eight juveniles were injured.

Jermahd Carter, 19, 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 Carter was issued March 12 and immediately delegated to the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Philadelphia. 

At approximately 3:30 p.m. March 12, investigators from the Marshals Fugitive Task Force and the Philadelphia Police SIG unit surrounded a home in the 12000 block of Academy Road in Philadelphia. Marshals believed Carter was hiding in a known family members residence and was presently home. Upon knocking and announcing, a family member confirmed Carter was inside and Carter was taken into custody without incident. He was then transported to Philadelphia Police Headquarters for processing.  

“With the arrest of Jermahd Carter, we are now seeking one more suspect. We have asked this suspect’s family for a surrender by tomorrow morning and if this does not occur, we are prepared to aggressively pursue him with every investigative resource available,” 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.
