Wilkes-Barre police served a second search warrant at a home that is at the center of an infant homicide investigation. Officers were looking for a firearm-handgun that may have been owned or in possession of a resident of the home at 351 North Washington Street. According to court documents obtained by the I-Team during the investigation into the homicide of two month old Antonio Evans a witness told detectives that resident William "Supreme" Johnson had a handgun in his waistband and at times waived it around. The court documents indicate that Johnson had been convicted of burglary and drug selling charges in New York and legally could not own or possess a firearm. Police went to the home just after 6 pm Friday October 18th. It was the second time police served a search warrant at the home. Evans died on Sunday October 13th at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital the same day he was rushed there by ambulance. According to Luzerne County Coroner William Lisman Evans suffered severe bruising under the eyes and in the buttocks area. Police are not saying if they located a handgun and charges have not been filed in the homicide case. Eyewitness News has made repeated attempts to contact the family of the baby thus far without success.
