Chicago police say a suspect is in custody in the shooting death of 28-year-old Wil Lewis, the son of a former Sturgeon Bay High School Principal. Police say 31-year-old Eric Vaughn of Chicago was arrested Saturday, the same day Lewis was shot at a bus stop in the Rogers Park area of Chicago.
Wil Lewis moved to Sturgeon Bay when he was seven and his father Joseph Lewis became principal, and lived here until after his sophomore year in high school. Media reports say Lewis was a photographer who had recently moved to Chicago where he was to start a job today.
The Chicago Tribune says Vaughn has been charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. Police do not believe Lewis was the target.
