Fugitive Task Force Nabs Homicide Suspect

Pittsburgh, PA – Allegheny County homicide suspect Bradley Kemp was apprehended at approximately 10:50 am this morning by members of the United States Marshals Service Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force and Allegheny County Sheriff’s Detectives. Kemp, age 22, was charged by the Allegheny County Police Department on July 3, 2014 with Criminal Homicide, Conspiracy-Criminal Homicide and Robbery. These charges stem from a November 1, 2013 incident in which Kemp and co-defendant Rasheim Wallace are alleged to have shot and killed 39 year old Thomas Cassano during a home invasion robbery in Coraopolis, PA.

Kemp was arrested by U.S. Marshals Task Force officers and Allegheny County Sheriff’s Detectives at an address in the 500 block of Sickles Street in Pittsburgh. Task force members had to breech the back door of the residence to make entry and subsequently located Kemp hiding in the basement where he was arrested without further incident. Kemp was turned over to Allegheny County Homicide Detectives. Rasheim Wallace remains a fugitive to date and anyone with information concerning his whereabouts are asked to call the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force at (412) 422-4722.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force is comprised of officers from the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, Allegheny County Sheriffs, and Westmoreland County. These agencies, along with the United States Attorney’s Office, are participating members of the U.S. Marshals Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force.
