LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - One year after a man and his dog were gunned down in their home, a family still struggles to find answers. Family members of Bryan Lewis took to the streets of the neighborhood where he was killed, hoping to get a break in the case.
In the wee hours of the morning on October 20, 2012, 21-year-old Bryan Lewis got a knock on his door. His father, Steve Lewis, said when Bryan opened the door he was shot seven times with an automatic rifle. His dog, Champ, was also shot to death.
"Just a horrible thing I wouldn't wish on Satan himself," said Steve Lewis. "Nobody should have to suffer like I am or his mama." He said he may never get closure but he still wants justice.
Pam Lewis, the victim's aunt, organized a canvassing event on the one year anniversary of Lewis' death. The walk began near the corners of Taylor Boulevard and Bicknell Avenue.
Supporters held signs that read "Please help us" and "Justice for Bryan." The signs also advertised a $10,000 reward.
"It's just miserable, not knowing, why or who," said Pam Lewis.
Those who knew Lewis said he stayed out of trouble and never even had a speeding ticket. They said he had a heart of gold. Family and friends said they will keep raising awareness in anyway that they can until Bryan and Champ's killer is caught.
"If they have any humanity to them, they'll let the police know," said Steve Lewis.
Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous police tipline at 574-LMPD.
