York City detectives are searching for a second man allegedly involved in a homicide outside a city strip club more than a year ago.
Damian Chaudre Banks, 22, of Hampton, Va., remains a fugitive in connection with the Feb. 17, 2013, fatal shooting of Trevahn Kent as Kent left Temptations at 617 E. Market St.
A warrant was issued for Banks on Feb. 11. He sometimes goes by "D," police said.
Already in custody for the killing is Derrick Eugene Johnson, 24, of no fixed address. Johnson remains in York County Prison without bail, charged with homicide.
Turned away: According to court documents, Banks and Johnson tried to get into the strip club about 2 a.m. but were turned away by the bouncer because they had been in a fight with Kent and Lamin Goodman inside the club several weeks earlier.
The bouncer warned Kent and Goodman that Johnson and Banks were outside and suggested they wait a few minutes before leaving, documents state.
The bouncer later escorted Kent and Goodman to another exit and checked outside to make sure no one was on the street, documents state.
Seeing no one, Kent and Goodman walked outside about 2:36 a.m., which is when a single gunshot rang out.
Both men ran, but Kent collapsed and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Woman ignored: Five days after the homicide, a Temptations employee told police she left the club about 2:15 that morning and saw Johnson and another man standing in the club's alcove, police said.
Johnson ignored the woman when she said hello to him, which she found odd because they have a relationship, documents state.
The witness said that's when she decided to walk across the street, where one of her friends lived, police said.
As she walked across the street, the witness tried to call Temptations to warn them of possible trouble, but got no answer. She heard the gunshot as she was walking into her friend's home, police said.
The witness told detectives that when the shot rang out, the only people on the street besides her were Johnson and the man with him, documents allege.
New witness: Last month, detectives sat down with another witness, who told them she was in a relationship with Banks. That woman also worked at Temptations.
She recounted that when she left the club that night, Banks and Johnson were outside waiting for her, police said.
She said she hugged them both, which is when she felt a gun in Johnson's waistband, according to documents, which allege Johnson showed her the gun while Banks told her to "go wait in the car" because they were waiting to talk to someone.
She said after getting in the car, she heard a gunshot. That's when Banks and Johnson jumped in the car and told the driver to "go!" documents allege.
Two kids fatherless: At the time he was killed, Kent, 21, of Vander Avenue, had a young son and was expecting a second child.
Johnson left town and was arrested about three months later by U.S. marshals in Memphis, Tenn., police have said.
