property. As Lewis walked away he was still arguing with the unknown male when Buckins and a

sibling attacked him. Buckins went into the residence, exited with a gun, and fired at Lewis striking him

in the leg. Lewis was transported to a local hospital and treated for a non-life threatening injury.
