U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Scranton Homicide Suspect in Manhattan, New York

On Friday, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Nasir Damani Williams, a 17-year old Wilkes-Barre man.
On June 11th, 2020, the Scranton Police Department investigated a shooting in the 300 block of South Main Avenue in which two female victims were struck and one died. As a result of the investigation, detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging multiple individuals, including Williams with Conspiracy to Commit Criminal Homicide and lesser included offenses. Attempts to find Gittens in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area were unsuccessful and the case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force.

On Friday, at about 7 a.m., members of the task force checked a home in the 300 block of Bayview Avenue, Inwood, Manhattan, New York, and arrested Williams without incident. He was transported back to Pennsylvania by the Task Force and turned over to the Scranton Police Department.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “It’s the Marshals Services’ duty to ensure that those charged with violent crimes have their day in court. It is my sincere hope that the victim’s family will find some measure of comfort knowing the suspect will face justice.”
