Lewis family makes combating gun violence their priority

Raymond “Shoe-Do” Lewis and his wife, Roxy, are still seeking the chance to grieve over the loss of their son, Garon, to gun violence on a hot August night in 2019. “I haven’t been able to mourn,” he said Thursday afternoon, sipping a cold Busch under the awning in front of his home off Ann Street. “There will be no closure until there is justice for the seven involved. I ask God just to let me live to see justice for all seven — the ones who fired the shots, the ones who surveilled him, the ones who laughed after he was killed. We are going to see justice in Iberia Parish at its best.”
