Federal authorities early Wednesday morning tracked down in Schenectady a fugitive wanted for allegedly gunning down a man in a Pennsylvania bar over the summer.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force took Halim Rayshawn Bowen, 23, into custody without incident on the 300 block of Brandywine Avenue. He was turned over to Schenectady police and will await a court hearing to determine whether he'll be extradited to York County in Pennsylvania.
Bowen is wanted in the shooting death of Jaime "Butter" Sanabria on Aug. 17 in York, Pa. Sanabria, 25, was shot in the back during an altercation in George's Tavern.
York police developed leads in the case and filed an arrest warrant for Bowen just five days after the shooting. U.S. marshals received significant assistance from both York and Schenectady police in locating and arresting Bowen.
"The coordination and cooperation demonstrated in this case ensured that an extremely dangerous and unpredictable murder fugitive was taken off the streets," U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said in a statement.
