Pottstown murder suspect arrested in California was out on bail during fatal shooting, DA says

Tyshaun Harvey, 21, was arrested by U.S. Marshalls in California. 

A man sought in connection with a murder in Pottstown has been arrested in California, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney. 

Authorities say Tyshaun Harvey, 21, was sought for the murder of 22-year-old Nahmer Baird in Pottstown. 

Baird was reportedly killed after an alleged shootout between the occupants of his Nissan Sentra and a Chrysler 300 at Locust Alley and West Street on May 29, according to officials. 

His car then crashed head-on into a Dodge pickup truck two blocks away, injuring its male driver. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.


Police found Baird unresponsive in the driver's seat on the 400 block of West Street. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

U.S. Marshalls located Harvey in a motel with a local woman in Susanville, California. 

He was arrested without incident and will be extradited to Montgomery county to face first-degree murder and related charges, authorities say. 

According to the District Attorney, Harvey was out on bail after posting $10,000 of a $100,000 bail at the time of the murder. 

The man is also facing charges, including aggravated assault from a shooting that occurred in Pottstown on March 29, 2021.
