WILKES-BARRE -- A jury in Luzerne County found Kenneth Evans guilty of the homicide Thursday afternoon. Hours later, gun shots rang out where he committed the crime.
Evans shot and killed Shantique Goodson in November when she was in a vehicle outside Sherman Hills. The first degree murder conviction in Luzerne County comes with an automatic life sentence.
A few hours later, shots were fired at the troubled housing complex in Wilkes-Barre. Officers tell Newswatch 16 someone shot into an apartment at Sherman Hills but no one was home at the time. Police think it is related to the conviction of Evans but did not comment as to why.
