Washington, DC – The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) is seeking the public’s assistance in locating Jovon Terrell Williams, 18, a man wanted for his involvement in a shooting incident that took place Oct. 3. In this case, five people were wounded and had to be transported to the hospital after violence erupted during the homecoming celebration events at Morgan State University.
Williams was charged Oct. 11 by the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City with attempted first-degree murder and other charges stemming from the shooting incident.

This case was being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the USMS and the Internal Revenue Service. On July 14, the Drug Enforcement Administration referred apprehension authority to the U.S. Marshals Service.
The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to Williams’ arrest. Additionally, Metro Crime Stoppers and ATF are offering a reward of up to $9,000 for tips leading to an arrest and charges filed.
