20 indicted by grand jury

A Big Spring man was indicted Thursday by a Howard County grand jury on numerous charges stemming from the Aug. 22 chase and attempted shooting of local man that led to the invasion of a family’s home in the 500 block of State Street.
Brian Christopher Lewis, 27, currently being held at the Howard County Detention Center, was indicted on charges of deadly conduct (two counts, both enhanced first-degree felonies), unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon (two counts, both enhanced first-degree felonies) and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (first-degree felony, enhanced).
Lewis was apprehended Dec. 14 at a residence in the 500 block of Young Street during a drug sweep carried out through Big Spring by local, state and federal law enforcement officers and arrested on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance.
According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the Big Spring Police Department, the altercation began when Lewis and another individual began chasing 32-year-old Lonnie Ray Gray Jr. — who was also indicted by the grand jury Thursday on unrelated charges — because of a domestic dispute.
“Officers responded to a residence in the 500 block of State in reference to a report of shots fired,” Everett said. “On arrival, officers found that a family had been inside their home when Gray banged on the door and then forced his way inside, begging the family to hide him from Lewis and the other male subject.
“As Gray ran through the house, Lewis and the second male subject came through the door chasing him. Lewis was armed with a handgun and fired two shots at Gray. Lewis and the second subject then fled the scene in a vehicle. No one was hit by the gunfire and Gray fled the scene down an alleyway.”
Everett said the second male subject, who was not armed, has not been charged in connection with the incident.
If convicted, Lewis could face between 5 to 99 years to life in prison on each charge, as well as a fine not to exceed $10,000.
