Community Members Honor Fallen Deputy

Many Nash county community members honored Deputy Warren “Sneak” Lewis Saturday afternoon by placing flowers on a car located in downtown Nashville.

Lewis was shot and killed Thursday while attempting to serve a warrant on two murder suspects at a home in Kinston.

Co-owner of Madelyn’s Flower Shop in Nashville says they have been flooded with phone calls asking for arrangements in remembrance of the deputy and to give to his wife and kids.

Davis says, "The community has really come together for this because he was definitely a hero because he gave the ultimate sacrifice and everybody has remembered him by laying flowers on his car as a memorial."

The visitation for Lewis will be held in Wilson on Sunday at Joyner’s Funeral home. On Monday there will be a memorial service at South Nash Senior High School.
