On February 5, 2018, at approximately 6:00 p.m., Harrisburg Police responded to the 1500 block of North Cameron Street for a report of people fighting in a store.

Upon arrival, Officers made contact with an adult female. The female stated that an unknown male pointed a gun at her and her juvenile son. Officers spoke with the son and learned that prior to the incident at the store, he encountered the unknown male in the area of Reilly Street. The male pulled a hand gun and pointed it at the juvenile’s head and went through his pockets. He took the victim’s iPhone 6 and $30 cash.  The suspect was also with an unknown female who was described as a short black female wearing all black.

The victim’s mother then confronted the suspect on Reilly St just east of N Cameron St. During the confrontation, the suspect pulled out the gun and pointed it at the mother.  The store clerk called police and the suspect left the premises.

The suspect was described as a light-skinned black male, approximately 20 years of age, with a skinny build. He was wearing blue jeans, a white jacket, a white snapback hat, and white sneakers. The gun was described as a small black handgun that was inside a purple bag.

On February 3, 2018, Harrisburg Police were dispatched to a residence on the 300 block of Crescent Street after the caller reported that her brother pulled a gun on her.  When Officers arrived on scene, the victim stated that she and Johnson got into an argument because she wanted him to leave. It was initially a verbal argument but then Johnson tried to punch the victim in the head. Another family member attempted to stop the two from fighting. At that point, Travon Johnson pulled a small black handgun from his pocket, raised the firearm to the left side of the victim’s head and stated that he would kill her. The victim left the residence to report the incident. Officers cleared the house which checked negative for Johnson.
