Elijah Lewis was shot and killed at Capitol

“This is where it is the most difficult. For me, I’ve spent a lot of my career focused on gun violence, especially youth gun violence prevention work, and having a scene like this, where a 9-year-old boy was shot. It’s horrible,” said SPD chief Adrián Díaz. The boy was Lewis’s nephew. He was in the front passenger seat of his uncle’s car when the shooting occurred, police said. Family members said Lewis was celebrating his niece’s birthday on Saturday.

Witnesses said Lewis possibly struck a man on a scooter, and that man reportedly began shooting at Lewis. Lewis’s brother, Mario Dunham, said Lewis tried to drive away to protect his nephew. “As he was driving away and they were shooting at him, he slowed down so people wouldn’t get hit by his car,” Dunham said. Lewis was a budding activist for racial justice, who rose to fame during the protests that followed the George Floyd riots.

Officers detained a 35-year-old man. A weapon was also recovered at the scene. Homicide detectives are leading the investigation. The suspect was booked into the King County Jail. A gofundme account has been set up in the name of Elijah Lewis’s mother to pay for his funeral and his family expenses.Read More…..
