Five years ago, on Jan. 27, 2013, Sonny Lewis was shot and killed outside of the E. 2nd Street Walmart in Reno. This year, during the annual candlelight service, Sonny's mother Sheri Potts called for justice. She said her son's killer is still out there.
"My son deserves love and respect from all that walked with him. He was everyone's warrior and protector," Potts said.
Sonny was only 25 years old when he was killed. The shooting took place on tribal territory during a fight outside the Walmart, and the case was given to the FBI to investigate. No one has ever been prosecuted,

Reno Sparks Indian Community governs the land where Sonny was murdered, but the prosecution was turned over to the federal government. Read more:
