By Allan Lengel

A sheriff’s deputy assigned to the U.S. Marshals Service task force was shot and killed Thursday while trying to serve an arrest warrant in a murder in Kinston, N.C., station WRAL reported.

The station reported that the deputy, Warren “Sneak” Lewis, was a nine-year veteran of the Nash County Sheriff’s Department.

The station reported that Lewis was approaching a home around 7 p.m. to serve a warrant when someone opened fire. The station reported that five people were detained, including three suspected in a June 2 murder.

“Investigator Lewis was a gentle soul and would go out of his way to give you the shirt off his back, if he thought you needed it. He will definitely be missed, and he leaves a void at this office that will never be filled,” Sheriff Dick Jenkins said in a statement.
