A former Northeast Wisconsin man was killed in Chicago over the weekend, in what police call case of mistaken identity. The Chicago Tribune said 28-year old Wil Lewis was shot in the back while standing along a street on Saturday in the Rogers Park neighborhood. He was a photographer who was supposed to start a new job today in the Windy City.
Lewis was born in Guatemala, was adopted, and moved to Sturgeon Bay at age 7, where his father Joseph Lewis was the high school principal at the time. The family moved to Kaukauna when Joseph got another job there. Wil Lewis graduated from Kaukauna High School in 2005.
According to his Linked-In page, he earned a photography degree at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, before working as a free-lance photographer in Chicago for several years.
