Search of gunman’s house finds weapons and a will
By ANDREW DeMILLO – 42 minutes ago

SEARCY, Ark. (AP) — The sheriff’s office says a search of Arkansas gunman  Timothy Dale Johnson’s home turned up 14 guns, antidepressants, his last  will and testament and a Post-It note that bore his victim’s last name and a telephone number. Police are exploring possible links between Johnson, 50, and Arkansas Democratic Party chairman Bill Gwatney, 48. Johnson shot Gwatney to death Wednesday and was killed by officers after a 30-minute chase.

Gwatney owned three Little Rock area car dealerships and Wednesday’s search of Johnson’s home turned up two sets of keys for vehicles from Gwatney car lots. The guns included a pistol and 13 long guns.
