LYNCHBURG, Va. – A man is dead after a shooting on Sunday, according to Lynchburg Police.
At about 5:40 p.m., police responded to the 200 block of York Street for the reported shooting. Authorities said when they arrived at the scene, they found a man lying in the street with a gunshot wound who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials identified him as Justin Lee Lewis, 24, of Lynchburg.
While authorities initially reported a suspect in custody, on Tuesday, Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney determined that, based on the evidence available at this time, criminal charges are not justified.
The person previously in custody has since been released.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lynchburg Police at 434-455-6050.
