    Tuesday Mar 3 | via Erie Times News 

    The Erie County District Attorney's Office today presented evidence that two spent shell casings were found hidden in the basement duct work of an east Erie apartment house shortly after a 37-year-old man was found shot to death there on the morning of April 8. The shell casings, according to the District Attorney's Office, were found in the duct work next to the empty wallet of the victim, Stephon Bibbs. Bibbs was found shot to death in the stairwell of his upstairs apartment at 1257 E. 27th St. shortly after 7 a.m. on April 8. The discovery of the shell casings and his wallet in the duct work supports District Attorney Jack Daneri's contention that Bibbs' downstairs neighbor, Jason P. Thomas, killed Bibbs after robbing him.
