The Lafayette police officer involved in the shooting of Tevin Lewis back in September will not be charged.

Grand Jurors determined that there was no evidence of a criminal act.

Lewis was allegedly shot after officers went to Soulier St. looking for someone who had a warrant for their arrest.

Officers claimed that Lewis pulled a gun out on them even though he wasn’t wanted.

He was charged resisting an officer, illegal carrying of a weapon and possession of a firearm.
