ROCKWALL, Texas - - Police have charged a former North Texas law officer with the fatal shooting of his ex-girlfriend and the wounding of her male friend at a parking lot.
Rockwall police Sgt. Aaron McGrew says Anthony Dewayne Lewis was shot during a chase Saturday night following the attack. McGrew says Lewis was in critical condition Sunday at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.
The former Hunt County constable faces murder and attempted murder charges with bond set at $1.5 million.
A Parkland official referred questions about Lewis to police, who didn't immediately release further details. The Department of Public Safety says Lewis was shot by officers during an exchange of gunfire amid the chase.
Authorities identified the slain woman as 33-year-old Jessica Aguilar. Officials say 40-year-old Francisco Delacruz was hospitalized in stable condition.
