U.S. Marshals Elevate PA Man Wanted in Barber’s Shooting Death to 15 Most Wanted Fugitive List
Reward up to $25,000 now offered for info leading to arrest
Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Marshals Service has added to its 15 Most Wanted list a man wanted by the Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Police Department and the Middle District of Pennsylvania for assault, homicide and parole violation charges.
The agency is also now offering up to $25,000 for information leading to the capture of Michael Anthony Baltimore, 39, who is alleged to have shot to death Kendell Jerome Cook and injured another man at the GQ Barbershop on North Hanover Street in Carlisle on May 22, 2021. Cook was the shop’s owner.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has also offered a reward of up to $10,000, and Cumberland County Crime Stoppers has offered $2,000.
Baltimore, who is also a barber and had worked for Cook until 2019, was featured in several episodes of the TLC reality series “90 Day Fiancé.”
Baltimore has an extensive criminal history and is known to be violent. He should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
“Michael Baltimore poses a serious threat to the community. By placing him on the 15 Most Wanted list, we have made his capture a top priority of the U.S. Marshals Service,” said U.S. Marshals Service Director Ronald Davis.
Anyone with information on Baltimore’s location should call the United States Marshals Service at 1-877-WANTED2 (926-8332). Anonymous tips may also be submitted via the U.S. Marshals Tip App, and tips may be sent to Cumberland County Crime Stoppers at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (855)-628-8477.
The U.S. Marshals-led Middle Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force combines the efforts of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to locate and arrest the district’s most dangerous fugitives.
The U.S. Marshals established the 15 Most Wanted Fugitive Program in 1983 to prioritize the investigation and apprehension of high-profile offenders considered to be some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives – typically career criminals with histories of violence who pose a significant threat to public safety.
