Student Accused of Shooting at Bullies Speaks Out
The case against an 18 year old student in Texas accused of shooting at bullies in his high school has been reset.
Prosecutors say 18 year old Warren Lewis instead "accidentally" shot a 16 year old bystander in the leg at his high school.
He is charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Possession of a Weapon in a School Zone.
But his attorneys say Lewis acted in self defense.
Lewis, his family and community leaders held a meeting on Wednesday at the Phoenix Youth Outreach center. He is pleading with students who are bullied to speak up.
Warren Lewis said, "My message to my peers is to stop holding it in. say something. Let's change the cycle."
Lewis' family said they had to move from their home after they were allegedly targeted in a drive-by shooting after the incident at school.
