Double Homicide Suspect Arrested by U.S. Marshals Task Force in York



York, PA - Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that the United States Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Shazmir Martino – a 20-year old man.

On February 22, 2017 the Pennsylvania State Police obtained an arrest warrant for Martino charging him with two counts of murder of the third degree, aggravated assault, aggravated assault by vehicle, two counts of homicide by vehicle, fleeing or attempting to elude officer and accident involving death/injury not properly licensed. Allegedly, on November 8, 2015, Martino, and three other men, fled the scene of an assault that left the victim unconscious. The responding officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop of the suspect’s vehicle. The suspect failed to stop and a pursuit ensued. A short time later, the suspect’s vehicle crashed leaving all four occupants badly injured. Two of the four occupants later died from injuries sustained during the crash.

U.S. Marshals and its task force partners, located and arrested Martino today in the 800 block of Bonneview Road in York without incident. Martino was turned over to local authorities pending judicial proceedings.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “Along with our law enforcement partners it’s the Marshals Services duty to ensure those charged with serious crimes have their day in court. It is my sincere hope that the victims families will find some measure of comfort knowing the suspect in this case will face justice.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, York City Police Department and the York County Sheriff’s Office.
