CLEVELAND – The Fox 8 I-Team is working to solve the mystery of the shooting of a videographer who was working on a music video when he was gunned down.

The shooting happened around 7 p.m. July 20 near Tacoma and Parkwood in Cleveland. Antonio Lewis, 23, was shot three times while setting up equipment for the video.

“He was working, he was doing his job and this happened,” said Shun Moore, Lewis’ aunt. “He video tapes weddings and was asked by a friend of a friend to do this music video.”

Lewis has been in the hospital since the shooting.

“He is now paralyzed,” Moore said.

Those living near where the shooting took place say the suspects fired numerous shot. Several homes and cars were hit with bullets.
