A fugitive from Massachusetts wanted on a federal warrant was believed to be in Hagerstown Thursday and is considered armed and dangerous, Hagerstown City Police said.
Marlon Booker, 29, of Attleboro, Mass., is wanted on a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution issued Feb. 2, police said.
Police alleged he fled after an armed robbery attempt that ended up in the shooting death of an accomplice.
Armed with guns, two men attempted to rob a third man on Jan. 29 on an Attleboro, Mass., street, said Hagerstown City Police Detective Shawn L. Schultz.
The intended victim pulled out his own weapon and shot one of the men to death, said Schultz.
Police said the incident was believed to have been drug-related.
Police here were notified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that Booker might be headed to Hagerstown because his cousin lives here.
