Shane Pryor, An Escaped Philadelphia Juvenile Murder Suspect, Was Arrested By US Marshals

Shane Pryor was apprehended late on Sunday afternoon, according to U.S. Marshals, after detectives observed him stepping off the bus in a known haunt of Philadelphia on security footage.

Around noon on Wednesday, January 24, Pryor escaped from a car in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Emergency Room parking lot, accompanied by two prison staff members, according to the authorities.

Following the examination of security footage, authorities claim that he broke out of the hospital driveway, made his way from building to building, entered public areas directly, and even struck up conversations with individuals, requesting a phone.

Fox29 Philadelphia reports that Pryor asked to use the phone at the front desk receptionist there, but was informed he couldn’t, so he departed the facility.

An 18-year-old was detained by Philadelphia Police on Friday for allegedly aiding Pryor in escaping from custody.

Charges against Michael Diggs include hindering apprehension, escape, and criminal conspiracy. Diggs is suspected of picking up Pryor and assisting him in eluding law enforcement.

Since he was accused of killing 54-year-old Tanya Harris in 2020 when he was just 14 years old, Pryor has been incarcerated. In that instance, he is still awaiting trial.
