Family rallies outside Louisville police department 2 years after son killed in shooting


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — The family of a Louisville man killed two years ago says they want to make sure police keep up the search for the killer in the case.

Family and friends of 21-year-old Bryan Lewis gathered outside of the Louisville Metro Police Department on Sunday to mark the anniversary of the death.

Lewis died on Oct. 20, 2012 while staying at his mother's house. Police say someone broke in, shot him four times in the face and also killed his dog Champ.

Lewis' father, Steve Lewis, told WDRB-TV in Louisville ( ) he'd like to get police and city leaders involved in resolving the case.

Police have said Lewis might not have been the intended target because his record was clean.
