A former Pennsylvania barber who appeared in ”90 Day Fiance” and “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” has been arrested a year and a half after he allegedly shot and killed his former boss. 

The wild arrest involved a bar fight, a knife, a loaded gun, more than 800 ecstasy tablets, and fentanyl, according to US Marshals. 

Michael Anthony Baltimore, 44, of Carlisle, was wanted as the prime suspect in the fatal shooting of GQ Barber Shop owner Kendell Jerome Cook, 39, of Steelton, according to US Marshals. He had been bumped up to the US Marshal's Top 15 most wanted in June 2022, and on Friday, January 13 he was taken into custody in Florida, US Marshals say. 

In the initial incident, for an unknown reason, Baltimore had come to the shop, located at 128 North Hanover Street in Carlisle, opened fire at Cook, and then shot at another former barber, Anthony White, according to police at the time. White survived but Cook died at the scene shortly after the shooting on Saturday, May 22, 2021, around 7:30 p.m., according to police.

Police in Davie, Florida, arrested Baltimore following "a disturbance involving a weapon at a bar fight" where Baltimore had allegedly "battered an employee and was in possession of a knife he was holding during the altercation and had also threatened to retrieve a firearm from his vehicle prior to fleeing the scene," US Marshals say.

Officers learned that he fled the scene in a silver sedan traveling north on University Drive and where it was later pulled over in "a high-risk vehicle stop in the 9900 block of Griffin, detaining two people" around 2:41 a.m., as detailed in the release. 

The woman driving was released at the scene once the police determined she was not the owner of the vehicle and had no involvement in the altercation earlier. Baltimore was arrested after the victim identified him, and was found with 2.3 grams of Fentanyl in his pocket. A search of the vehicle revealed a loaded handgun, over 200 grams of marijuana, and 818 ecstasy pills, US Marshals explain in the release.  

Baltimoly had given a fake name to officers, three fraudulent identification cards with his picture were found in the vehicle, and a fingerprint scanner was required to confirm Baltimore’s true identity, according to the release. 

He is being held on $75,000 in bail for local charges in Florida, according to the Broward County Sheriff's office, which is where he will remain until he is extradited to Pennsylvania, where he will be held without bail for homicide, assault, and parole violation charges.
