It appeared Lewis walked from a vehicle up to the apartments.

"We put our ear to the door, and we could hear somebody faintly gasping for help, so I open up the door that's when I found him lying in a pool of blood," said one woman, who asked that her identity be concealed. "I just put my hands on him so he would know that somebody was there with him so he didn't feel alone. You never think you're going open up the door to something like that."

Police announced April 12 that they have charged Darryl Moye in connection to the shooting. The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator J. Barr at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29325 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.
