Michael Anthony Baltimore, who featured in TLC’s hit show “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” is now part of the U.S. Marshals Service’s 15 Most Wanted list.

The barber from Pennsylvania appeared on Season 4 of the reality TV show in 2019. U.S. Marshals said in a release that the 43-year-old is wanted for murder after he allegedly gunned down his boss at a barbershop on May 22, 2021. He is said to have shot down Kendell Jerome Cook at his GQ Barbershop in Carlisle, and another man was injured during the shooting. Baltimore worked for Cook at the barbershop until 2019.

U.S. Marshals said that the fugitive is wanted for homicide, assault and parole violation charges, reported New York Post. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. U.S. Marshals have also put forward a $25,000 reward along with Cumberland County Crime Stoppers that has offered an additional $2,000 for information.

Baltimore, who has a history of violent crime, “should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached," according to the release. U.S. Marshals Service Director Ronald Davis said in a statement that the fugitive poses a "serious threat to the community." He added that by placing Baltimore on the 15 Most Wanted list, U.S. Marshals have made "his capture" their top priority.

According to PEOPLE, Cook and Baltimore appeared on a few episodes of "90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?" in 2019. They informed Ashley Martson that her husband Jay Smith cheated on her with a woman in the bathroom of the barbershop. Baltimore’s friendship with Cook was documented in some of the episodes of the show. They were briefly featured in a few episodes. They were not the main subjects of the show, but the two seemed to have a close bond.

A personal conflict between Baltimore and the victims led to the fatal shooting, said police. Before his death, Cook was allegedly getting threats from Baltimore for several months.

The 15 Most Wanted Fugitive Program was established by the U.S. Marshals in 1983. It was done to prioritize the investigation and apprehension of high-profile offenders considered to be some of America's most dangerous fugitives.
