Lewis is charged with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

The investigation is ongoing as the department speaks with others involved in the incident, a spokesman said. Lewis may incur additional charges as the investigation continues.

“A lot depends on what happens to the second victim,” the spokesman said. The second victim is still in critical condition at a local hospital.

Lewis’s relation to the victims is “family by marriage,” the spokesman added and the investigation is believed to be “pretty much on the right path” in determining a resolution.
