1 min read


Harrisburg, PA
– Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Zaequan Amir Black, a 20-year old Harrisburg
man.

On November 6, 2020, the Harrisburg Bureau of Police
investigated a shooting in the 1800 block of Zarker Street which left
one person wounded. Based upon their investigation, detectives obtained
an arrest warrant charging Black with aggravated assault, illegal
possession of a firearm, and lesser included offenses. At the time of
the shooting, Black was wanted by the Dauphin County Sheriff’s Office
for failing to appear on two previous assault charges. Attempts to find
Black were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive
Task Force was asked to apprehend him.

Today, at about 11 a.m.,
members of the fugitive task force checked a home in the 1800 block of
Walnut Street in Harrisburg and arrested Black without incident. He was
returned to Harrisburg police for processing and arraignment.

U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said, “The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the
importance of bringing those charged with violent crimes to justice and
we give these types of cases our utmost attention. It is my hope that
the community will find comfort knowing the alleged attacker will face
justice.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of
Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state, county and local police agencies,
including: the Harrisburg Bureau of Police; the Pennsylvania State
Police; the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole; the Lower Paxton
Township Police Department; the Swatara Township Police Department; the
Derry Township Police Department; the Dauphin County Adult Probation
Office; and the Dauphin County Work Release Center – all of whom
participated in this arrest.
