Police say they’ve checked for Gates at a few addresses in the City of Erie. They know he has moved around, so there is a possibility he could be fleeing Pennsylvania.

Both are facing conspiracy to commit homicide charges. Gates is also facing charges of homicide, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm prohibited.

The shooting remains under investigation.
