Former constable indicted for shootings

A Rockwall County grand jury Wednesday indicted former Hunt County Constable Anthony Dewayne Lewis on charges of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon involving the February 16 shootings at The Harbor in Rockwall.

Lewis remains in custody at the Rockwall County Detention Center in lieu of $1 million bond on each charge in connection with the incident during which Jessica Aguilar of Rockwall was killed and Francisco Delacruz of Dallas was wounded.

Lewis was Aguilar’s former boyfriend.

Lewis is also facing indictments in Hunt County, in connection with the end of a chase later that evening.

Lewis’ vehicle was spotted by law enforcement a short time after the shootings and the pursuit began, ending on the service road of westbound Interstate 30 near the Monty Stratton Parkway. Lewis was reported by officers on the scene to have exited his vehicle and to have pointed a handgun at the officers, at which time he was shot.

A 9 mm handgun in Lewis’ possession was recovered at the scene.

The Rockwall shooting is under investigation by the Rockwall Police Department and will be prosecuted by Rockwall County District Attorney Kenda Culpepper.

The Hunt County shooting is under investigation by the Texas Rangers. Hunt County District Attorney Noble D. Walker Jr. said the local case will be considered by the Hunt County grand jury, which is next set to meet on May 31.
