HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at an apartment complex at the above address and found Lewis in the entry way to an apartment. It appeared he had sustained a gunshot wound. Paramedics pronounced Lewis deceased at the scene.
Further investigation revealed Lewis was at a co-worker’s apartment cooking food for homeless people.
