Police on Monday searched six homes in the River Run and St. Alban’s neighborhoods, on Pat Stough Lane and in Huntersville as part of their investigation into a Dec. 5 incident on Pat Stough Lane that left a local 16-year-old critically injured. They seized evidence in all but one home, mainly computers and cell phones they hope will offer clues about how the boy was hurt during a late-night party at the home.
