Fatal bypass shooting investigation moves forward

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A special prosecutor will decide whether to file charges against an Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agent involved in a fatal shooting on the Albany bypass.

39-year old Clayton Lewis was shot and killed as he sped away from a traffic stop on the Liberty Expressway with A-D-D-U agent Mark Farley in the back seat.

Agent Vy Chu was struck by Lewis's car.

Investigators say Farley shot Lewis several times as they struggled over a gun speeding down the bypass.

The G-B-I has completed its investigation and turned its report over to Cordele Circuit D-A Denise Fachini.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said  "I feel that was the appropriate thing to do, in light of the fact that I serve on the A.D.D.U. board. I have not reviewed the case at all myself."

Farley remains on administrative duty at A-D-D-U.
