Anthony Lewis now housed in jail

Charged with murder, aggravated assault, $2 million bond

GREENVILLE — A former Hunt County constable, charged in connection with a double shooting in Rockwall, has been placed in custody at the Rockwall County jail.

Anthony Dewayne Lewis was later wounded in an alleged standoff with law enforcement following a chase into Hunt County on the night of February 16.

“He was released from the hospital and booked in at Rockwall County Detention Center on March 11,” said Sergeant Aaron McGrew with the Rockwall Police Department. “I have no specifics regarding his injuries or medical status.”

Lewis has been charged with one count each of murder and aggravated assault, with $1 million bond on each charge involving the shooting at The Harbor, during which Jessica Aguilar of Rockwall was killed and Francisco Delacruz of Dallas was wounded. Lewis had previously been in a relationship with Aguilar.

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 in Greenville. 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.

Lewis will also likely be charged in connection with the incident on Interstate 30, although there was no indication Thursday as to the status of those charges.

The Rockwall shooting is under investigation by the Rockwall Police Department. The Hunt County shooting is under investigation by the Texas Rangers.
