Campus police have issued a warrant for the arrest of 20-year-old Shameek Jamal Bernard Lewis of Aurora in connection with the Sept. 8 shooting outside of Summit Hall.

Lewis allegedly approached 21-year-old Broomfield resident Johnnie Bradley Fresquez for drugs in the southwest corner of Summit Hall shortly after midnight, according to a CSU Police Department press release.

A bullet grazed Fresquez’s arm during the incident, which happened around midnight, but he did not seek medical attention. Fresquez drove to his Broomfield home before alerting local police several hours later.

The same release confirmed that neither of the men are CSU students or employees, but because of the location of the shooting it is under CSUPD jurisdiction.

Lewis fits the description originally given to police at the time of the shooting. He is said to be a 5-foot-7-inch black man who wore a blue flannel striped shirt and a hat with a red brim at the time of the shooting.

Students were informed of the incident via safety alert text messaging and CSUPD had more officers patrolling campus following the incident. Investigation shows the shooting was an isolated incident and the campus community was in no further danger.

Plans are in motion to install lighting and extra security cameras in the location of the shooting to deter future criminal activity in that area. Summit Hall’s parking lot is also home to one of campuses’ many Emergency Call Boxes.

Amy Parsons, vice president for University Operations, worked with the campus Public Safety Committee to determine the need for additional safety measures and is now in the process of obtaining bids for the job.

Anyone who knows of Lewis’ location or other information on the shooting should call the CSUPD at 970-491-6425.
