Deputies received a call for a report of a shooting in the 7000 block of Cheathams Road just before 12:30 a.m. on July 6.

When units arrived they found the victim, 21-year-old De’aris Lewis, 21 of Prince Edward County, shot. Lewis was transported to St. Francis Hospital, where he later died.

The shots were fired at a Fourth of July field party attended by about 300 people, party-goers said.

Tyler Manuel, who’s cousin owns the property where the shooting occurred, said he ran into the house after he heard the “gun fight” break out.

“[Shots] were coming from everywhere. When people were pulling [out of the driveway], there were shooting,” said Manuel.

Deputies said the investigation into Lewis' death is ongoing and that law enforcement believe others were involved. If you have information that could help investigators, call the Amelia Sheriff’s office at 804-561-2118 or Crimesolvers at 804-561-5200.
