Officer-involved shooting suspect dies
The man involved in a shooting incident with police Feb. 16 has died.
Brandon Scott Lewis, 34, of Mammoth Cave, Ky., received multiple gunshot wounds in the incident that happened along S.R. 135 near Hayswood Nature Reserve south of S.R. 62 and had been hospitalized at University Hospital in Louisville.
The incident began in Kentucky, with police chasing Lewis and his wife, Alisha Star Lewis, 32, in an alleged stolen SUV. The chase continued into Harrison County with both the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept. and Corydon Police Dept. assisting. The vehicle was stopped when officers deployed “stop sticks,” flattening all four tires of the SUV.
It was at that point that Brandon Lewis began firing at officers. Alisha Lewis shot herself in the head and died at the scene, according to police.
Brandon Lewis died Thursday.
