U.S. Marshals arrest Pa. murder suspect in Schenectady

HARRISBURG, Pa. – U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested a 23-year-old man in Schenectady on Wednesday in connection to a York, Pennsylvania murder.

Halim Rayshawn Bowen, 23, was being sought for a murder that occurred on August 17, 2013 in York, Pa. It is alleged that Bowen entered a tavern in the 300 block of Walnut Street and fatally shot the victim in the back. On August 21, an arrest warrant was issued by Magisterial District Judge Scott Laird, charging Bowen with Criminal Homicide.

On August 29, the York City Police Department requested the case be adopted by the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Investigators developed information that Bowen may have fled to upstate New York, and an investigative lead was sent to the U.S. Marshals Service's New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force in Albany.

On October 9, U.S. Marshals, USMS NY/NJ RFTF personnel, and local law enforcement located and arrested Bowen in the 300 block of Brandywine Avenue in Schenectady. He was taken into custody without incident and turned over to local authorities for processing. He will await a court hearing to determine his extradition to York County, Pa.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, "The coordination and cooperation demonstrated in this case ensured that an extremely dangerous and unpredictable murder fugitive was taken off the streets. It is our top priority to arrest violent offenders, especially those who have no regard for human life."

U.S. Marshals received significant assistance from the York City Police Department and Schenectady Police Department.
