A man being sought for a Jan. 18 fatal shooting in a McKeesport bar was arrested on Thursday morning as he tried to hide in the duct work of a Wilkinsburg home, authorities said.

The U.S. Marshal's fugitive task force apprehended Mark Leonard, 32, of McKeesport, at about 9:30 a.m.

Leonard was wanted for shooting Jayemond Bailey, 34, of McKeesport multiple times inside the Street Stars bar in the 300 block of Sixth Avenue.

A preliminary hearing on homicide and drug charges is scheduled for April 10, according to court records.
